Along the Shadowed Ridge

Along the Shadowed Ridge, 12”x16” acrylic

A painting inspired by the ridge that blocks much of the low winter sun. We have loads of snow coming which is inspiring a lot of winter artwork this year.

Though the daylight is brief the combination of snow and moon last night made for a magical evening. I guess it’s only a matter of time before I paint some large moonlight related imagery.

New Start

Mystic Distance 12”x16” acrylic on wood panel

I have shipped all of my recent work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento. Now I am making a new start! I have some commissions I need to work on, those start next week. I will take the remainder of this week just to paint.

Time erodes everything, painting offers occasional moments of ascent.

Remember Light

Remember Light 24”x18” paint on wood panel

This time of year light does seem like something either remembered or glimpsed shining on a distant mountain. Light is the star of the show in this painting.

I am going to be putting coats of varnish on this piece today, then time to frame!

Emerging

Another new painting in the studio. This one is bound for Elliott Fouts Gallery, that hour glass is draining quickly! I need to deliver these paintings in early January.

Again I find myself focusing on filtered sun and a dramatic sky with this painting. I have some exciting plans that are just a bit of a departure from my typical work… stay tuned!

I also have some paintings available at a super cool gallery in Missoula. Check out the link!
