Final shot of this painting. Now on display at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. This is one of four paintings I have at the gallery.

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!
I am working on some smaller paintings for a small works exhibit. This is the first potential piece.
A dream like painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille, you know the usual!
I am now working on 16″x20″ & 18″x24″ boards. Time to make larger works for upcoming shows!
This painting is off to it’s new home today. There is an idyllic dream quality that is compelling and surreal about this one. Like a memory that is just a little too sweet to be entirely real.
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!
I am putting the finishing touches on this 24″x 18″ painting. It seems like I am always trying to paint ethereal meditative works. This one gives me the feeling of drifting through the air, like the best kind of dream.
I will put a frame on it for the Bainbridge Performing Arts exhibit.
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″
Yet another 24″x30″ acrylic painting. I have done a few of these meditative shoreline paintings, this is the last for now.
I am continuing works at this scale for upcoming shows.
The title says it all about this 12″x9″ acrylic painting.
