Bringing it back home today with a new painting in the studio. Inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. I always think of this as my home water. It has been for more than 6 years now.
Final studio capture of this dramatic cloudscape. I am still putting together my solo show collection, photographing some of the finished pieces.
I am working on a couple large cloudscapes. I like brooding work that is both beautiful and a bit surreal. I think of these works as psychological paintings or dreamscapes.
This painting is fairly shimmering with golden light. More inspiration from the landscape surrounding me in North Idaho.
A bit of melancholy with the loss of summer light. I am excited to see neighbors fleeing for the south. A silent winter is a painting paradise.
This painting is part of a collection of work now available through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming.
Another 12” square on my easel. Priming a huge number of wood panels was definitely a good idea. I want to spend my time painting without all the prep work between moments at the easel.
Time is grinding us all back to star dust. I wish I could stockpile the good days.
I was pleased to learn that this large painting sold through Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. This piece is one of my favorites, photographs didn’t do it justice.
Another dreamscape painting for my rapidly approaching solo show. The show will be at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. The show opens July 2nd!
I often find myself painting work I think of as “dreamscapes”. The driving focus of this piece is mood, light and atmosphere. The result not so much a literal translation of scenery but a slightly surreal departure from reality.
An atmospheric painting inspired by the place I live. I am always chasing mystery and magic in my work, this has a bit.
