A moody new painting on the easel. Inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho.
There is just something about a campfire. I finished this small acrylic painting today. Beyond the hypnotic nature of flames, the paint in this one feels a bit hypnotic.
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.
Light and atmosphere as inspiration and motivation.
I love watching rain washing over the distance. The farther you see, the better perspective you have.
Where shall you take us?
A little shimmer for the day.
One of five paintings I have been preparing to ship to Wyoming. These are all 12″ paintings framed with black floater frames. These frames have become my default. The frames present the entire painting rather than covering the edges. They provide a clean modern look that works well with most of my work.
Straight on photo of this painting sitting on my largest easel.
In a mood
I love painting moody water and cloudscapes. I tend to turn them into something I think of as an emotional landscape. Expressive and full of motion, a place to put my feelings I suppose.
This is one I just finished yesterday. I will be working on some more along this theme!
