I was fortunate enough to spend Thanksgiving in Hawaii with family. Grateful for the trip and inspiration.
The shorter daylight hours brings dramatic sunlight to the north country. Fewer people and more loons, a solid trade off. This painting was inspired by North Idaho, the country I am calling home.
A new commission I finished painting and have now shipped across the country. This project was arranged through Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.
I received a phone call from RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. They were letting me know they had sold some of my paintings. This was one of the pieces that found a new home.

This large painting has shipped to Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. The painting is a pretty special one. I was planning to save it for my solo show in Astoria, Oregon this June but Momentum needed more work so off it went.
It was a long week of framing, packing and shipping. Finding time to paint here and there but the other work was overwhelming my time. Looking forward to digging in next week in the studio.
I am shipping a few small pieces to Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. These pieces were requested for a small works show. This time of year galleries are always looking for small paintings for Holiday Shows. I am sending small paintings to just two galleries this year.
Drawing inspiration from the low autumn sun. This time of year can bring a sense of melancholy. I also get excited for the massive hours of studio time ahead. I am leaning into the season and finding some magic for my work.
A scene from my studio with a new painting on the easel. I always loved this Damien Jurado song as well…
I will be varnishing and framing this painting during the weekend. It is a commission that will be displayed with an older painting of my called “the hermit”.
