In Bloom

Apocalyptic Bloom I 24”x18” acrylic on wood

This is a painting I did in November. Part of an ongoing series.

I did not include this piece in my Sacramento show or send it off to any of the galleries I work with. Really unusual piece but I’m really excited about it. It feels like the beginning of something even if it looks more like the end.

Winter’s Dark Love

Shadowed Lands 18”x24” acrylic on board

This is the painting I had been building to with my 10″ studies of the Kootenai Valley. There is a mighty and powerful river there but I was entranced with the small trickling streams and ditches. Cold but amazing place. I wanted to stay until dark but when we nearly got the car stuck leaving seemed like a pretty good idea!

On the Wind

Messenger 30”x24” acrylic on cradled board

I have been working steadily on some powerful storm imagery. This particular piece is one of my favorites.

I did not have specific plans for these, just driven to create them. Horizon Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, wanted them. They ended up selling this one before I could get it varnished. So Messenger, will be shipping directly to California. The other three will heading to Wyoming. I will post images of them all when they leave North Idaho.

In a mood

Whispering 24”x18” acrylic on wood panel

I love painting moody water and cloudscapes. I tend to turn them into something I think of as an emotional landscape. Expressive and full of motion, a place to put my feelings I suppose.

This is one I just finished yesterday. I will be working on some more along this theme!
