Waves rolling in the studio

Time’s Cycle 21”x8” acrylic on panel

I have been swamped with work lately, my studio is a mess but no time to pause. I am doing some wave studies in preparation for a large commission. This first go is the same aspect ratio as the final painting. Giving me a chance to play around with some compositions and color schemes.

Lower Columbia College

Last night was the opening for my solo show at the Lower Columbia College in Longview, Washington. It is a beautiful space and it was a shame I couldn’t make the long trip. The Gallery director was nice enough to send these photos after the exhibit was hung.

Four for the show…

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…

Waves of Pend Oreille 

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. 

Spectator 


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.
