Morning Comes


…and evening follows. 

This is an 8″x8″ acrylic painting. I have always liked tonalism and an overcast morning really displays that kind of magic. Now that summer is finally here we are seeing beautiful bright mornings, I will play around with some of that imagery, never enough summer days in this short life.

Dark Reveals Light


A quick little 10″x10″ painting. The simple theme of light and dark are a consistent pursuit in my work. 

I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.

Edge of Sorrow

These are two acrylic paintings I did a number of years ago. The subject was a very basic white dress, an old wedding dress.

The surfaces are heavily textured with cracks and built up modeling paste. This is a method of painting I have left in the past. The results could be interesting and organic but chaotic!

These two paintings have now been completed. I recently applied a couple coats of varnish and took this photograph in my studio.

Since I am moving these photos may be the last taken in my studio. For the near future I will be without a dedicated work space. I will probably be working on smaller┬ápieces… I must keep working!
