Eastern Song

Eastern Song – 38”x12”, acrylic

I am nearly finished with my latest commission. It was a very specific size and dimension so I custom built a cradled board to the exact measurement that the client requested. I use to outsource the woodworking aspect but people have become both unreliable and horribly expensive (winning combination). So now I do everything in-house right down to the framing.

After the board was finished I sanded it down as smooth as possible. I put four or five layers of gesso onto the wood. Finally it is time to do the painting!

It is always satisfying when the buyer is excited by the finished work. The final steps will be signing, edge detail and varnish… then packing and shipping!

Summer Magic (SOLD)

Summer Magic – 6”x6”, acrylic

I painted this little commission for a woman in the San Juan Islands, a place I dearly love. She had fond memories of the big lakes of North Idaho. She wanted a little painting that captured her magical memories from the summers in the 70’s and 80’s.

Pack River Flats (commission)

Pack River Flats – 24”x18”, acrylic

Wrapping up this commission. A painting of Lake Pend Oreille from a different vantage. I drove over to the owner’s property a number of times before starting a concept and ultimately this final painting. Always a pleasure to paint this like I love so much.
