Four moon paintings being prepped for a group exhibit. The show is called “Many Moons” at Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina. Happy to be invited to participate.
This one feels like a special painting. I haven’t decided if it should be part of my solo show or a group show I was invited to participate in featuring the moon as a theme.
Happy Earth Day, now check out the moon. We seem dead set on destruction but somehow the planet is still spinning… good job earth.
Today started in a flurry of painting. Then I stopped to order some frames and do a podcast with a fellow painter. Back to painting on this very Good Friday.
A new painting in the studio this morning. Another tribute to the moon. Two more nocturnal painting in the works… stay tuned.
I new moonlight painting in my studio. I have been working on a few of these pieces recently. I sold a couple of them but this one might be bound for a group exhibit. Time will tell as it seems to do.
We had a pretty loud lightning and hail storm on Lake Pend Oreille yesterday. A little bit of excitement as winter slowly gives up the ghost.
As a painter I have the freedom to follow my whims wherever they ramble. I am pursuing some work that is a bit more fantastical with no specific plan. The day I started to make real progress on this piece I found out Mark Lanegan passed on. Sadly that is burned into my brain, maybe appropriately so.
Some of the most dramatic colors at sunset occur in the opposite direction of the descending sun. A wild punch of color illuminates the mountains to the east. I ran through the snow to film this and the color was intense and fading fast. Summer is gorgeous but that low winter light is magic.
Spending a little time focusing on the moon. With the short days of winter the moon has more time to shine.
