These four paintings were some works I installed at “Evans Brothers” last night. This Sandpoint coffee shop has regular art shows and is a great place to go in Sandpoint, Idaho. In total I have 26 paintings on display, so if you happen to be in North Idaho…
I am drawn back to moody water scenes… probably the change of seasons.
I’m excited to be working on large dibondi panels, they are light weight and will be easier to ship and drag around to art shows!
This little collection of paintings was a commission for a client in England. They were picked up at my house by FedEx which was very convenient!
The larger painting is 14”x14” and the smaller works are 5”x5”.
24″x30″ water painting.
This is the first painting I have finished on dibondi aluminum panel. I primed the surface and painted as I normally would. I mounted d-ring hangers on the back and it worked really well! I have been trying to find a way to make my work more transportable for mailing and hauling around to art exhibitions. This seems to work really well and will also be helpful for storage. These paintings can be hung without a frame but would work well with a traditional frame as well.
24”x36” acrylic painting.
Suddenly we have snow at the beginning of November! The lake fades into oblivion like a vast ocean… I love that.
I mailed off another batch of paintings to this California gallery. Pretty fond of these, hope they find good homes down there!
This is a large work in progress (36”x48”). The scale of paintings like this is exciting but on a deep cradled board it renders it very expensive to ship!
I have been working on three large brooding paintings. They will make a small solo show tour this year and next.
Here are three trout paintings I recently completed. The slick shiny trout lend themselves well to the paint.
As the seasons change and the snow marches down the mountains I am seeing a lot more days like I represented in this painting. This one is 48”x36” painted on a 2” cradled board. I recently sold off a big painting so I had the perfect space available on my studio wall.
I have a few solo shows coming up in the next 5 months so odds are this one will be doing some traveling.
I have returned again to an old theme… the isolated chair. I am trying to put together some small works for a show at a little gallery in Idaho. I have a few big solo shows coming up soon so my time has been very tight… not to mention that pesky day job that had been keeping the lights on…
This painting is 12”x12”, some interesting results that I will keep in my mind for future work. I ended up selling this painting first thing this morning so now I need another piece for the previously mentioned show.
It is good to be painting.
