Two shoreline paintings I recently finished. I took them outside to get a picture in the lovely autumn light.
Two small paintings headed to this pop up gallery in Genesis, Idaho. It is a fall show and some of my fire paintings were requested!
The title of this painting is everything.
Hard to believe it is already the middle of October. The snow on the mountains and falling leaves certainly aren’t subtle reminders. I have been working on small paintings, experimenting and exploring. Now time is getting away from me so I have to get serious about my next solo show. I will be delivering work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in early January which seems soon!
Another painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. This one has some lovely and subtle color transitions. I have found it difficult to get an accurate photo of the painting but this easel shot wasn’t bad.
The days are getting shorter but they have been incredibly beautiful.
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.
The glowing sun hides behind the forested ridge. I love that blast of light, the atmosphere charged once more as the sun is disappearing. The trees losing their details in the transition.
As we march forward into fall I have noticed the changes. The sun is lower in the sky and with more clouds it has made for some glorious skies. It also hits the lake shore with startling intensity at times. This is the inspiration for my most recent works. These forest paintings are 10″x8″.
Weather systems moving across Lake Pend Oreille as Fall closes in. Intense sun and deep shadows the landscape always shifting.
As the summer gives way to fall I continue to paint smaller works. This painting is 11″x14″ acrylic/open acrylic on panel.
