Timber Stories (SOLD)

Timber Stories, 12”x12” acrylic

I painted this during our first legitimate snowfall on Tuesday. The painting didn’t actually keep me warm but I know it tried.

I only have a couple of these 12″x12″ boards left, I have really enjoyed working at this dimension. Trying to dig through old artworks and sand them down. Reuse existing materials, recycling is a lot of work!

Halloween

Apocalyptic Bloom II, 16”x20” acrylic

Happy Halloween! I painted this last November it seems to have the right vibe for today.

While picking up my Vashon Island show I saw friends and family. I was fortunate to carve pumpkins with my sister’s family! That is me in the foreground.

Origin Story

Origin, acrylic 8”x10”

This is a little fire painting I did exactly one year ago today! It happens to be Fathers Birthday and it seems like a great image to post on this day!

On an amusing side note someone on Instagram said they wished I would do video game art because it would be amazing. I did that for 25 years… it wasn’t as fun as it sounds.

Yellowstone

1988, 24”x18” acrylic

In 1988 there were huge forest fires in Yellowstone National Park. My Dad and I drove through the park on our way to an epic backpacking trek just south of Yellowstone. I thought I would never see forest fires like that again, I wish that were true.
