A small painting currently on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
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.
This is what I refer to as a psychological cloudscape.
A quick snapshot of my studio counter top. I had been working on some small pieces but now will move onto larger works. I was approached about having a show in Astoria, Oregon in June… I couldn’t say no!
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.
This is the second forest painting I have completed recently. The trees were inspired by my front yard! Both of the paintings are 24″x30″ acrylic paintings.
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…
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.
