The second painting in the series. I have painted three thus far plus some variations.
Nature has no emotion, making it feel very cruel at times. The natural world has and will always be my inspiration, the world is a beautiful place.
We just had a huge windstorm. The winds knocked down trees and took out the power all over the region. Nature always shifting, nothing stays the same. Even now the daylight is stretching and the sun is returning to the north.
Sometimes (maybe always)
People ask about the brush I used in a particular Instagram Story. Folks get excited, then it seems incredibly important to me. Where is that brush have I lost it or did I accidentally throw it out? Was that brush the reason that painting worked? Can a paint anymore without said brush? Seeming doubtful now…
A strange life driven to create. My motives are pure, I continue my work. Grumpy old man… I may well be.
Not sure where I put that brush…
A painting from a couple months back. This piece is relatively simple but there is a quality I adore.
Darkness lurks along the edge. The brightest day may bloom from night. Left on a forgotten road it always finds the way.
One of my favorite pieces, painted in late December of 2018. It started me down an exciting path of exploration. I keep myself open to ideas and am willing to pursue imagery that is compelling to me even if I know it is unlikely to be popular. The Harbinger is currently on display at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. They have a nice little collection of my work so stop in if you are on the Oregon Coast.
Busy varnishing artwork for my upcoming show. So much work to sort through, so much exploration.
This painting shares its title with the ongoing series. It is such a bloom, I just couldn’t help it! The piece is probably my favorite to date in the series. These paintings are a bit hypnotic, I find myself lost in thought staring into them.
