This is me

Brian Sostrom ▫️Paintings▫️

For people not familiar with me and my work I made a grid. Six of these nine paintings were done in 2019. I have been painting my entire life but have been painting full time now for exactly one year. Thanks to those of you that have helped support my efforts!

Beneath the Surface

Two 11″x14″ paintings I wrapped up last night… well aside from varnishing, signing, framing 😳. They really look good together as an accidental diptych!

I often work two or three paintings of similar subject at a time. It keeps my focus narrowed and my paints can be shared between multiple paintings. I frequently make interesting discoveries and small creative jumps with this approach!

Distant

I love the power and ever shifting appearance of clouds. Giants of the sky decorating the blue or bringing in weather.

I have been working on a series featuring clouds. This is one I finished recently, it captures a bit of magic for me…

This acrylic painting is 16″x16″
