I seem to be painting a lot of clouds these days. Giant powerful and full of mood they have always fascinated me so I am simply following my interests. This particular painting is 16″x16″ acrylic / open acrylic painting on cradled board.
As a painter I am striving to paint work that feels unique and new with a fresh vibrant use of color and mark making. The goal is a bit like shooting at the moon, I realize it is impossible but it doesn’t stop me. This particular painting is simple but encapsulates a lot of what I am striving for.
This 24″x18″ painting has a loose quality I really like. I have chosen it to promote my upcoming show on Bainbridge Island. Currently I am completing work for a different show in Longview but I am planning for both!
This 16″x16″ acrylic painting is fresh from yesterdays easel. I took a break from the work required for the two upcoming solo shows and just enjoyed the process of creating… it is after all everything.
This 24″x30″ painting is a little glimpse of summer in the middle of our winter.
Another moody cloudscape!
This is a detail from a 24″x18″ painting. I was pretty happy with this but like it better cropped. So it might be time to scrub it.
A little expressive 9″x12″ sky and water painting!
I am wrapping up this 36″x36″ cloud painting I did on commission. I realized it looks pretty good in my living room! It is off to California regardless.
My two recent forest paintings together! Each acrylic painting is 24″x30″ on aluminum panel.
These two paintings are each 24″x30″. They are acrylic/open acrylic paintings.
This afternoon I conducted my first painting workshop. I had 8 students and we spent a few hours playing with plexiglass painting. This took place at the closing of my solo show at Lewis-Clark State College.
