I was fortunate enough to spend Thanksgiving in Hawaii with family. Grateful for the trip and inspiration.
I am always drawn to light and atmosphere. This painting incorporated those elements well.
This was a commission I finished early in December of 2020. It’s a subject people truly love, I am discussing taking on a similar commission in the near future.
Three small paintings I did in preparation for the large commission I recently finished. These were a bit of an experiment with materials. For the final commission I stuck with acrylics but there are interesting roads to explore here.
Final photo of this painting. It was one of the larger commissions I have painted recently. I just shipped it off to Oregon.
I finished painting this commission during the week. I had done a few 14”x11” paintings in advance just to experiment with color and motion before tackling such a large painting. over the weekend I will varnish this one and install hangers. Then package and ship!
This painting was sold through Abend Gallery during my solo show in August.
One last study before starting a 36”x24” commission. This one is a loose take on the composition, values and colors. The large painting will be much more detailed but I love the loose vibe and motion of this small take.
More wave experiments before starting a large commission.
A nice bit of drama with this piece. I am starting a large commission so I have been doing some related studies.
