I am continuing to capture the feelings of February. The daylight is stretching and our winter snow is receding. I know winter has not finished with us.
A new winter scene on the studio easel. I love nature, it is a constant source of inspiration and joy. I tend to use nature as a jumping off point. My paintings tend to be fantastical dreamscapes, this is a good example. The paint is also the subject, I obsess over paint blending and mark making.
Ascend to Dream & Drifting Above
More studio photos of recent work. I have reorganized my jam packed studio… excited to see the work all together. Deciding what will go to my June 11th solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
Another strangely optimistic painting in the studio. I have been obsessively listening to news podcasts and watching just about every other news source on television. It always feels like the end of days and just seems to get worst. I don’t have much faith in the human animal… but here is a bit of visual hope.
I am a fan of visual transitions. The moment the sun slips away and the moon becomes the light. Long before the stars it hangs like a ghost.
The Harbinger (SOLD)
This painting sold in February of this year through RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I am excited to have another solo show with them summer of 2022.
Final capture of this dreamscape currently on display at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. This is part of a solo show that will be on display through September 6th.
Depth of Air
I have finished this painting. It will be part of my solo show at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. I am finalizing a few more paintings and varnishing a lot more. So much to do before I ship off the work.
The Exhibit opens July 2nd at Momentum Gallery. The gallery has an incredible new space in fully renovated historic building. Hoping to get down there soon.
Water to Shore
A nice bit of drama with this piece. I am starting a large commission so I have been doing some related studies.
I started this painting just about a year ago. I decided it was time to finish it or prep the surface for a new painting. I ended up adding some wave detail and strengthening the contrast.
