This small painting really connected with me. I love to create tension and movement when I paint. I have placed this on one of my studio shelves for further reflection. A massive version would be pretty compelling.
Crown of White (Abend)
A studio view of this painting framed shortly before it was shipped to Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. I sent a collection of three paintings to a landscape painting exhibit at this great gallery. It was an honor to be invited to participate in the show!
Rainbow (another look)
It is hard to believe this painting is almost 7 years old, they grow up so fast. Simply posting this one because it is a bad ass painting.
Studio (I like it)
I worked with an architect to design my studio. I am now 7 years in on this dream. I’m always seeing things I want to change. The truth is I am super fortunate to have such a great creative space. A place to focus my skills and imagination. Restless as my spirit is, I would still hate to walk away. Time doesn’t stop and work continues until it doesn’t.
I have been rearranging and clearing out my studio for a few months. Trying to optimize the space and make it more aesthetically pleasing. Along the way I have found some forgotten paintings that I really like. These two were from 2018, They will be on display in my studio once again!

Thank you for joining me on my artistic journey. I am excited for new work and adventures in 2023!
Do you do what you LOVE?
Some mornings I am in the groove, this has been a good one! I love spending my time painting, never thought I would be able to do this full time. Very grateful things have gone the way they have.
More nature adoration happening in my studio this weekend. Driven to paint landscapes void of mankind. I am the type of person that likes my experiences in the wild to be without bipedal intrusion. I have always been a loner.
This photo was taken 5 weeks ago, much warmer days. Now I am wearing layers and a stocking cap in the studio. Acrylic paint dries much more slowly with these temperatures which is a benefit of the season!
Devil in the details
I feel bad for the letter “Z”. I’m sure it never wanted to be the new swastika. There are too many monsters in the world but they are only human.
