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. 

Wait


This is an older painting, two years old. I had been painting desolated man made objects working out the beginning of a series. I had four other chair paintings they all sold aside from this one. “Wait” was actually my favorite of the bunch so now I am pleased to hang it up in the studio. Perhaps I will revisit the idea in the future.

Beginnings


This is another 24″x24″ painting I very recently completed as part of a commission.   

Bold lighting elements and soft moody atmospheric work is seemingly simple but is very challenging to paint with acrylic and open acrylic paint. 

I am drawn to enigmatic imagery and though this subject is straight forward it still has a bit of mystery…. that’s what it’s all about for me.

Dark Reveals Light


A quick little 10″x10″ painting. The simple theme of light and dark are a consistent pursuit in my work. 

I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.
