Remembering happy summer memories. Painting summer when family came to visit for July 4th. This painting is at Abend Gallery in Denver.
The week has suddenly taken a bad turn. For the first time in a long while I won’t be working in the studio. This older image painting seems appropriate.
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.
An experimental older painting I recently dug up. I made a couple modifications and hung it in the studio.
The darkness of this painting seems appropriate for the winter solstice. Looking forward to more daylight!
Part of a collection of paintings available at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.
I was pleased to hear this painting sold over the weekend. It was one of my favorite pieces at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
A little mood on this Monday morning.
An older painting I recently dug up. I put a couple more hours into it and like the result. I rarely go back to older work unless I need a surface to paint on.
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.
Two recent paintings on the studio table. Paintings are really piling up this year. I generally pick through older works and reuse the boards if I don’t think the paintings are up to my standards. These two will probably be kept.
