I have painted some small campfire paintings with the intention of eventually working on larger ones. Currently the largest boards I have prepped are 11″x14″ so I decided to paint some at that size. Just large enough to give me more freedom of movement! I sold this one before I posted it on Instagram. The woman who purchased it saw it on my “story” which is a video limited to 24 hours. She lives in Kuwait, excited to be sending work to a country I have not mailed to previously!
Here is a collection of some of the paintings I have done this summer. They are all on display at my solo show in Pendleton, Oregon at the Art Center!
It just occurred to me that I left out one of my favorites when I was taking this group photo so I will include it separately!
Two 11″x14″ paintings I wrapped up last night… well aside from varnishing, signing, framing 😳. They really look good together as an accidental diptych!
I often work two or three paintings of similar subject at a time. It keeps my focus narrowed and my paints can be shared between multiple paintings. I frequently make interesting discoveries and small creative jumps with this approach!
Another painting in my brooding landscape series. I hope to have 4 of these totally finished for my next solo show. It opens in Pendleton, Oregon at the Arts Center August 2nd!
This 36″x48″ painting has been part of my exhibit collection since late last fall. Yesterday it sold at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. This is one of my favorite recent large scale paintings, I hope it adds some intrigue and drama to it’s new home!
Two of my 14″x11″ paintings featuring pink clouds. I am varnishing and framing these two works for the upcoming art exhibit in Astoria, Oregon.
Another small painting with a large sense of scale. This acrylic/open acrylic painting on panel is 9″x7″.
I have been painting a lot of ocean paintings of late! This is a 20″x16″ acrylic painting on panel.
This acrylic painting is one of three in a series. Yesterday I sold one of the set but the buyer agreed to let me bring it to the Astoria show, June 9th, which was great! I was not planning on another show so soon and had signed up for a bunch of commissions. I have too much to do but I am really thankful to have people interested in my work.
This is part of a collection of paintings I am doing on commission. The painting is 7″x9″ and it won’t actually have this frame as the client has something else in mind. This frame actually covers too much of the painting in my mind, when a work is this small every bit counts!
