Varnishing and framing my collection of paintings in preparation for my June 11th solo show. Twenty two paintings will be on display at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I will also be on display at the opening, to some degree.
This painting is varnished, framed and ready to ship to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. There is a much larger painting shipping with this piece, will post that tomorrow!
WIP in the studio today. Hard winds kicking up on the lake today, making for a timely painting.
More nocturnal painting happening in the studio. Outside the wind is howling and everything is frozen. The moon is beautiful yet indifferent.
I am working on a couple large cloudscapes. I like brooding work that is both beautiful and a bit surreal. I think of these works as psychological paintings or dreamscapes.
I will always paint, until I am gone. I have spent my entire life drawing and painting. It is what I do, not a hobby but real oxygen to lungs. Instagram provided me with my first major exposure but it is clear that it’s not an artists place anymore. If you want to see my work in the future this is the only guaranteed online place to see it.
I have been painting some small winter scenes which have been a satisfying expression of the season. There is a lot of winter left, no doubt there will be more snowscapes.
A large new painting finished in the studio. This one will most likely be part of my solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The show will be this June, dates to follow.
Short winter days often bring dramatic conclusions. As pretty as the sunset is looking to the East is often more dramatic. The snow covered mountains get blasted with the final shot of sunlight.
A sunny little piece of sunshine here in the midst of winter.
