Tree of Light

Tree of Light – 24”x18”, acrylic

I just finished this dark intriguing piece. I posted it here a while back as a WIP. I am locked up in the studio scrambling to get paintings finalized for my upcoming solo show. The exhibit will be in Astoria, Oregon at the RiverSea Gallery! The show opens June 11th.

Promo photograph for Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. I have solo show at this great gallery in August of 2020! This is going to be a huge exhibit and I am digging in to make my very best work.

About the artist:

My name is Brian Sostrom. I am a full-time painter, and a lifetime painter, living in North Idaho. I paint what I consider to be psychological landscapes. Inspired by nature but never striving to do what the camera can.

Road through Fire

By Fire, 24”x18” acrylic

As an artist I often feel compelled to make work. This year I created s body of work called “Apocalyptic Bloom”. They weren’t paintings the the galleries representing me wanted. It is not artwork that my average collector would be into. Still I took this side road that represented a large part of 2019. I will always follow my artistic curiosities and interests.

This painting is on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. A new gallery to represent me since I started the journey.
