More snow coming, more winter paintings ahead. It felt like spring was coming early, I knew it was just a temporary state. Just another excuse to paint some more winter imagery. There is a feeling I am chasing with some of these works… so more opportunities.
An older piece that now resides in Hong King.
A small painting I did as a commission. I am going to make some large moon related paintings so this was a nice warmup.
When the moon comes out in the winter it seems especially magic. The light is so limited in January.
In my life I have felt like a negative soul. Still it seems the act of creation is an act of optimism.

Mountains to the East roll into Montana. Lake Pend Oreille is what drew me to North Idaho.
This is is another painting taking the long trip to Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.
Atmosphere and light, they take me there.
Nature and art are both free of sentimentality, somehow I am not.
A cool little painting from April. I was experimenting with framing options, this one worked well. Since then I have switched things up significantly. I am now painting on thicker wood panels and using a more minimal floating frame. Everything is always changing, hopefully evolving… it is good to pause and reflect at times.
