Waning Day

Waning Day 16”x12” acrylic on wood panel

A colorful cloud painting on the studio counter with some friends! This one doesn’t have the apocalyptic vibe of yesterday’s post.

Another day in the studio, I am grateful.

Here is a link to some of my work currently at Radius Gallery:

Apocalyptic Bloom #1

Apocalyptic Bloom #1 paint on panel 24”x18”

This is the first in a series of paintings I am working on. I have always been obsessed with the movement of clouds and the power and energy of nature. This is only a slight shift of vision but once in a while you see something in your work that clicks.

Dragon Fire (SOLD)

Dragon Fire 14”x11” acrylic paint on wood panel

I framed and shipped this painting to a new home. These days I have abandoned the notion of hanging onto art no matter how much I like it.

The people who purchased this painting loved it so much that they first purchased it as a print from http://www.minted.com and then decided they had to own the original! It is a great feeling sending work somewhere it will be cherished.

New Start

New Start 12”x16” acrylic on panel

A colorful sunrise painting inspired by an early fall morning on Lake Pend Oreille.

I painted this in tandem with “Scotchman Peak”. I typically work on a series of paintings at the same time so they develop together. It keeps my focus narrowed and allows my color palette to be shared.

Here is to new beginnings!

Camp Fires

My collection of four campfire paintings. I sold one of these and thought I better get a “family” photo of them before I mail off the purchased piece. These paintings are all 8″x10″ plus the dimensions of the floating frames.

I am starting a large collection of small works (and writing a long letter on a short piece of paper). After so many exhibits this year I am resetting a bit and approaching my work in a little different way. I am always experimenting and exploring.
