I love the power and ever shifting appearance of clouds. Giants of the sky decorating the blue or bringing in weather.
I have been working on a series featuring clouds. This is one I finished recently, it captures a bit of magic for me…
This acrylic painting is 16″x16″
Another moody cloudscape!
This is a detail from a 24″x18″ painting. I was pretty happy with this but like it better cropped. So it might be time to scrub it.
I switched it up slightly with a smaller painting board, this one is 24″x18″.
14″x14″ acrylic painting.
This little collection of paintings was a commission for a client in England. They were picked up at my house by FedEx which was very convenient!
The larger painting is 14”x14” and the smaller works are 5”x5”.
I recently completed this 14″X11″ acrylic painting. I was very pleased with the feel of this particular piece. I have been on a vacation but I am very eager to get back to the paint!
Three 5″x5″ cloud studies.
I found some small boards that were prepped for painting while unpacking some boxes in my studio… so I painted on them! It is a nice change to change the scale of my work. It is also a reminder how much more I like simple fresh marks on a painting.
Three atmospheric landscapes I have recently completed.
I am experimenting with some new materials and a different substrate than plexiglass. Exploring the behavior of new mediums can be both exciting and difficult but it feels like a bit of adventure and keeps my mind turning.
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.
