I never took a finished photo of this painting. I still don’t have a proper photo! It is at least an interesting contrast in environments.
This morning the sunrise was an epic display of color. I had been rousted from bed by my furry friends and when I walked into the living room the light was a stunning surprise. I am so excited to see our daylight increasing and the snow genuinely seems to be melting…
I few small paintings from a busy week. As much as I enjoy working on large paintings it is fun to mix it up!
I sold these two paintings. One is bound for Germany, the other for California!
They were challenging to paint but also rewarding. One was a commission the other just for fun.
I am pretty excited about the atmosphere in this painting. It was almost finished last week but I came in with a little more shadow and contrast. It was just the thing.
This is a painting I did in November. Part of an ongoing series.
I did not include this piece in my Sacramento show or send it off to any of the galleries I work with. Really unusual piece but I’m really excited about it. It feels like the beginning of something even if it looks more like the end.
I was going to take the day off. I find myself behind and needing to get more work framed and shipped out. Still with the sub freezing temperatures not a bad way to spend the day. I just framed this one and will be shipping it to California tomorrow!
Another small painting inspired by a beautiful wildlife refuge in North Idaho! The preserve is called Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge. It is nearly to Canada in the Idaho Panhandle.
My latest solo show is open at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I am so pleased to have a show at this gallery! This is also my first major exhibit in California.
I will be attending the Second Saturday opening February 9th, it runs 6-9 PM. Photographs reposted from @efgallery.
What can I tell you, I like clouds. A close up on one catching the last light. Though the days are getting a bit longer the sun is still low. Often clouds seem to be the only ones enjoying the sunshine.
