I have been busily preparing work for my upcoming show. I decided to bring some smaller paintings with some of my larger work to this exhibit. These twelve paintings are all 10″x10″ in size, they were all painted over a seven month period. Signing varnishing and adding hangers all takes time but it is part of the deal.
I am painting a couple of atmospheric paintings inspired by Lake Coeur d’Alene. I was there on a weekend outing and saw some pretty spectacular clouds over the lake. The lighting was very dramatic and inspirational.This is the first painting I have done, it is 16’x16″. I am pretty pleased with the outcome but it doesn’t begin to do my memory justice. I will post the next one when I complete it as well.
Three atmospheric paintings recently completed. Experimenting with a combination of acrylic and oil paint. I am attaching a video sequence as well, the image loses something in translation.
Welcome spring! Here are some small paintings I did in the first half of March. These are all 10″x10″ acrylic paintings on plexiglass.
I am looking forward to the longer days and much more sunshine!
Here is a collection of 10’x10′ studies I have painted this week. Lake Pend Oreille is frozen along much of it’s shoreline reluctantly giving up the ice to March. Giant clouds roll across the landscape in a constant dramatic shift. Photos don’t seem to do the beauty justice and my paintings barely hint at the spectacle…. we do what we can.
Clouds are endlessly fascinating to me, particularly when there is a bit of blue Sky visible! These three paintings are 10″x10″ cloud studies I recently finished. I am hoping to paint some large cinematic skies I the coming months, I will do a lot of small studies first!
This moody study is 10″x10″ acrylic.
