Water in the frame

Testing out a frame on this 9″x7″. Frames can really give a painting a beautifully finished look. I have been working on panels recently and these are difficult to hang without a frame. So I have purchased a couple of frames to test them out. I typically don’t spend extra money on frames so trying to decide how to move forward with these!

Reflections 9”x7”

I made this little video of the painting in progress. It is on a paintbook by “edge pro gear”. A pretty slick setup made for outdoor painting but it works great in a studio as well. It has a light mounted on top which provides amazing lighting to work with. It uses magnets to hold the artwork to the box.

The High and Low

The High and Low 16

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.
