This is the latest selection of paintings making their way to the Elliot Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. This collection is made up of four 12”x9” paintings and one 16”x20” painting. All acrylic/open acrylic paint on cradled birch wood.
I have been sending work regularly to this California gallery and am happy now to have a solo show scheduled at the space for February 2019! I pushed off the date of the show so that I could add to my collection of work after my two remaining solo exhibitions this summer in Oregon (eastern and western).
It will be nice to have a California gallery display my work in the midst of another brooding NW winter. I am not sure if I will fly out for the opening but I plan on flying down with a large shipment of paintings as an early winter reprieve!
I have taken on a commission to paint some small paintings at an unusual size. So I took the opportunity to prepare a number of extra boards at that size.
The title pretty much describes it. I love fog lifting through the trees in the early morning. Firs and pines standing still while light and shadows shift and swirl.
A burning sunset painting, this one is modest in size at 10″x8″.
I am working on a series of colorful “edge of day” paintings. I very frequently work with a rather muted palette so the color is an exciting excursion. It is all about the light and atmosphere so I am letting these images be suggestive and abstracted.
Two 12″x9″ paintings I completed this week. Trying to keep things minimal with intriguing mark making and beautiful atmospherics.
I have been working on some smaller paintings as a little break. I just finished this 12″x9″ painting very early this morning.
This Painting is currently hanging on Bainbridge Island. It is part of the collection I have at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery through April 1st. The painting is 24″x18″ and has a black floating frame.
These are some of the smaller paintings I will have at next Friday’s show at the BPA. I am bringing 22 paintings which might be too much for the space… time will tell.
I put a floating frame on this 18″x24″ painting. I am hoping to have eight paintings of this size as part of my show opening March 2nd on Bainbridge Island. I still have a lot to do!
