I captured a high resolution of this painting before the packing begins! Getting ready to send a group of works to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
I have always loved watching clouds, in that way I’m not alone.
A small painting with a minimalist approach. Focusing on simple blends and interesting mark making.
Three 24″x24″ paintings on the studio counter. Sometimes it is good just to start painting… no clear destination. These cloudscape paintings were freeing to paint. I am not sure if I will keep these but it doesn’t really matter.
I have some large square panels I am playing with in my studio!
This is a painting I did in November. Part of an ongoing series.
I did not include this piece in my Sacramento show or send it off to any of the galleries I work with. Really unusual piece but I’m really excited about it. It feels like the beginning of something even if it looks more like the end.
My finished storm collection. Varnished, framed and ready to pack. Two of these will head to Horizon Fine Art Gallery In Jackson, Wyoming. The two on the left will go to private collectors.
Light and fluffy, it’s the way I like my pancakes. It is also an accurate description of this particular cloud painting. This one was a bit of a challenge to paint. I wanted to combine that brilliant floating feel with my sculpted mark making approach.

What can I tell you, I like clouds. A close up on one catching the last light. Though the days are getting a bit longer the sun is still low. Often clouds seem to be the only ones enjoying the sunshine.
It seems like I always have a lot of “series of paintings” I want to work on. This is one I am going to boost up a bit higher in priority. A sort of heavenly view of the skies. Dreamy and a bit surreal or at least that is my thought today.
I painted this little study this morning. I am also prepping a bunch of larger panels to move forward with these paintings…
