The week has suddenly taken a bad turn. For the first time in a long while I won’t be working in the studio. This older image painting seems appropriate.
Another large painting in the works in my studio.
This painting seemed like the perfect post for Halloween. Part of a series of dark tree imagery I created this year. I intended to paint some huge versions but the pandemic, fires and general apocalyptic vibe of the year dulled my enthusiasm… at least for now.
Winter came raging in though Fall is still at work. Time is short on hours, less this time of year. Monochromatic winter looms and palettes shift.
A couple pieces inspired by morning hikes. Currently the leaves are under ice and snow, there is a little more fall ahead.
Wrapping up some studio photography. Final shot of this cloudscape.
I really like the color scheme and moody vibes of this painting. As I prepare a lot of giant boards I am going to be going back and forth between small paintings and huge panels. Ultimately I want to create more large scale epic works. The large pieces are much more expensive to make and end up with a large price tag so tougher to sell. Ultimately they are more satisfying and I aim to please myself.
In a strange moody land.
A moody piece that is a preview to the dark coming months. I have spent a lot of time painting at this scale. I will be working on much larger pieces in the coming months.
Always chasing, it is solitary work.
