Meditation on the damage we have done and continue to do to our beautiful mother.
Always had a soft spot for this painting, though it has been tough to photograph. It will be part of my upcoming solo show “Dreams between Darkness” opening June 11th at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. Check out the video to see it living in the studio.
Some new shimmering work. There was a time when I thought a 24”x18” board was big… now it just seems like a fun size to paint. I am putting together a large collection of pieces with these dimensions, some should be available at my solo show June 11th at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
Final studio capture of this dramatic cloudscape. I am still putting together my solo show collection, photographing some of the finished pieces.
WIP in the studio today. Hard winds kicking up on the lake today, making for a timely painting.
Psychological landscape work! This apocalyptic piece has a tremendous presence in the studio.
Final studio capture of this nocturnal painting. Just last night I had to stop and stare at a crescent moon. Nineteen degrees at night it still stopped me in my tracks. I took a moment to just absorb the vastness.
This painting is being shipped to a buyer in Florida. So many sales in Florida these days. I know have some friends moving to Florida, I am still in the snow country.
Just a note the title has nothing to do with pessimism. There is a town called Hope, Idaho… east of me where I often catch the moon rising. I don’t generally explain titles but this one, for once, wasn’t dour.
I am taking some high resolution studio photos of recent work. This hopeful painting is willfully contrary to all the dark news. I wish I could focus on the gifts in life.
This one has shipped to its new home in Colorado. I am pretty selective regarding commissions I take, this was a fun one.
