I have always been a fool for that last glimmer of light. Beauty and melancholy side by side, both heartbreakers.
Glowing with the last touch of light. Everything fades, time marches on.
So many little projects I need to take care of this week. Varnishing, framing and packing… hopefully painting too!
This was a little series I painted just about a year ago. These paintings were sold to three different buyers. I had imagined them staying together but it wasn’t meant to be!
I framed and signed this little painting this morning. I was originally painting it as a study for a larger work. Now I am shipping it to a gallery in South Carolina!
I have been recycling painting panels lately. Finding old paintings, removing the paint and starting new work. I dug this one out, always drawn to something about it. I put a few hours into it yesterday. Now it will live to fight another day, like me.
Winter rolls on, that rodent was wildly mistaken! I am working on some vivid sunset paintings this month. I have a show deadline in a few weeks so I am going to dig in.
I had s little commission last week of the northern lights. I decided to do a second painting which I finished over the weekend!
Also I saw a moose Saturday!
The third painting inspired by the Kootenai National Wildlife Refuge. I am currently working on an 18″x24″ piece in the same vein.
Last weekend we took a little road trip to the Kootenai National wildlife refuge. We didn’t arrive until the evening but the lighting and views were magnificent! The main loop drive was closed for the winter, but worth the trek regardless!
I have done a few little winter scenes inspired by the evening. I hope to paint a larger image next.
