I am always intrigued by light and the ethereal nature of clouds.
Studio light alone shines on this moonscape commission. Last look at this one, it was packed up and shipped to its new home.
One of five paintings bound for Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming.
Yesterday I wrapped and boxed them all up. Today we are getting more snow so they might not ship for another day or so.
A small painting I did as a commission. I am going to make some large moon related paintings so this was a nice warmup.
When the moon comes out in the winter it seems especially magic. The light is so limited in January.
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!
