My newest painting in an ongoing series I call Apocalyptic Bloom. I have been trying to build a collection of these works but have sold off a few. Putting together and intriguing show.
Another moody storm piece. I love trying to capture that sense of epic power.
I picked up a bunch of new boards to paint on. Always excited when I have so many surfaces ready!
This is a TBT to late December. I am still excited about the strange surreal menace of this piece! Inspired by the dark of winter and the holidays.
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.
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!
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.
This painting is part of an ongoing series I keep adding to. The images are all big storms over water. They have a very heavy psychological feel. I am utterly obsessed with this collection and keep adding to it!
I am continuing my recycling of boards. Half a dozen paintings I liked but not enough to keep have been stripped off to become something new!
I am really pretty addicted to apocalyptic cloud formations. The beauty and power are fascinating. This one is small but mighty!
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!
This is what I refer to as a psychological cloudscape.
