More inspiration from the forest. I am very fortunate to live close to a National Forest trailhead. I have been using it constantly and it renews my inspiration daily. With so much snow already building up, not sure if I will be able to keep it up… I will try.
I have been painting some of the local colors I see on my early morning hikes. Now it seems that winter has snuck in. This morning I will see if the trail is treacherous. No doubt there will be some winter imagery in the future.
Winter came raging in though Fall is still at work. Time is short on hours, less this time of year. Monochromatic winter looms and palettes shift.
A couple pieces inspired by morning hikes. Currently the leaves are under ice and snow, there is a little more fall ahead.
Rain and fall leaves, I had an unexpected urge to represent the season.
Another summer has slipped away. I always feel a little crushed this time of year. Every season has its beauty and the lights will stay bright in the studio.
I finalized this painting and framed it in a floater frame. Today I am shipping it to its new home in Oregon.
Heartbreaking as it fades.
Another autumnal painting inspired by North Idaho. The leaves have pretty much all fallen now. I was meaning to do more fall imagery, maybe I will do some larger ones as the seasons change.
Chasing the beautiful colors of fall. I decided I had better try to capture just a little of the fall magic. The colors have been stunning and quickly shifting by the day.
