Looking up at snow covered branches. I am endlessly dragging them off the driveway, hoping my timing isn’t wrong.
The other day we received 8″ of snow. It is always startling to wake up to such a dramatic shift in the world.
I abandoned what I was working on in the studio and did a couple moody snow scenes. Fun capturing the vibe right outside my window.
Remembering to be Grateful
It was too early to be awake.
I reached for the phone, 3:00 AM. The terrible dead-zone of night.
Something I must remember. Was it important or maybe a secret? Perhaps just a bill I had forgotten to pay. It’ll come to me if I can just get back to sleep, I’m sure it will.
A modest sized acrylic painting. Continuing some rainbow exploration. I have some very large art panels waiting for me!
Darkness lurks along the edge. The brightest day may bloom from night. Left on a forgotten road it always finds the way.
It is a stream darkly meandering.
Negativity eroding the shore.
Stay dry, the current is strong.
I often hear about Holiday depression. This year I seem to be feeling it. A terrible dread and sense of hopelessness. Perhaps it is a chemical thing. Maybe something to do with the sun failing to rise above the hill. I posted something regrettable last night on WordPress, I am sorry for that. I hope everyone is doing well this Holiday Season.
I took a proper photo of this finished painting. This one is only 12″x12″, I definitely plan on doing larger works with this moody atmosphere.
In my life I have felt like a negative soul. Still it seems the act of creation is an act of optimism.
A brooding forest scene. Experimenting with some new ideas.
North Idaho is a heavily timbered part of the country. I am beginning work on a series that pays tribute to the forest. Of course I will be working on many other things as I can not help it.
