Some new shimmering work. There was a time when I thought a 24”x18” board was big… now it just seems like a fun size to paint. I am putting together a large collection of pieces with these dimensions, some should be available at my solo show June 11th at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
A vibrant little painting from February of this year. I was painting a lot of color studies and smaller works. always a useful approach before working on larger paintings. A faster way to experiment with color, value, composition and concepts than a big panel. Of course in the end I just moved on without following many of these threads.
I have partnered with Epik Canvas for a temporary run of prints on canvas. A lot of fun options available at very affordable prices! Link in my profile.
I am painting a series of forest images featuring brooding skies. The low winter sun lighting up the trees in such a dark winter world is staggering.
This piece was sold through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole (a couple years back). It was inspired by the beauty of the Kootenai National Wildlife Refugee in North Idaho.

I saw the old beast and I saw myself.
Capturing some high resolution photographs of recent paintings.
Working on some 20” square wooden panels. I used to avoid the square format. Now I appreciate the fact that they are so void of composition, so blank before the paint.
Final photo of the second painting in the series.
