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 am putting together a collection of 10 miniature paintings for Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. They will be traveling to LA for an art show with the gallery.
The wooden edges on these boards is 1.5” thick so I decided to coat them with gold leaf. It ended up being a beautiful decision but my studio has a lot of gold stuck to the floor.
These two paintings are now framed and available in Jackson, Wyoming at Horizon Fine Art Gallery!
Another painting inspired by the season. Heartache echoing across the years.
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.
A quick visit to the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art. A really impressive building with a great rooftop sculpture garden though very limited number of sculptures. One interesting exhibit but other space was in transition so a bit limited. It was heavily damaged in the riots so it seemed to be in restoration mode.
Framed and available at Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming! I generally just post static shots of my paintings but it is nice to see the work in motion. It still doesn’t capture the essence of the art but it gives the viewer an alternate view.
A new painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. It is always amazing how quickly the colors and values shift as the sun rises. I have become fairly obsessed in my later days.
I just shipped off this painting. It is headed to a new home in Connecticut, a state I have never been to. I am very grateful to my collectors and supporters. I spend a ridiculous amount of time working in my studio but I am so thankful to be doing what I love for a living.
