I had a small piece of board left over so I painted this little 6″x3″ painting. Inspired by the horrible wildfires of the Western United States and Canada.
It is so sad to see and smell the smoke this summer, seems to be worst every year. I read that the fire season in Idaho has grown by more than 70 days in the last 20 years. If there is a silver lining it can look very beautiful at least twice a day.
A little moody forest scene. I painted this one a couple months back and decided it looked great in an extra frame I had! I was planning on taking it to my show but it looks like I have sold it this morning… I really should focus on retaining work for my exhibit that is just two weeks out! A bird in the hand? Poor bird.
This little 9″x7″ painting was a little experiment. I am playing around with some ideas with an eye towards larger work.
I painted this on a paintbook by edge gear pro. Really nice piece of equipment. It has a light mounted on top which especially helpful.
I have taken on a commission to paint some small paintings at an unusual size. So I took the opportunity to prepare a number of extra boards at that size.
The title pretty much describes it. I love fog lifting through the trees in the early morning. Firs and pines standing still while light and shadows shift and swirl.
This is the second forest painting I have completed recently. The trees were inspired by my front yard! Both of the paintings are 24″x30″ acrylic paintings.
I have been meaning to paint some forest scenes for some time. I finally have completed one of the paintings on a 24″x30″ board.
Two 16″x16″ paintings inspired by my snow covered yard.
I live in a beautiful rural setting. I love the wildlife and privacy, but like everything good, I take it for granted.
Rolling along my eyes looking away from the world and into my own dark brain. Something brings the light back, this “forest tunnel” is the kind of thing I have grown blind to. Then in the evening with the headlights on… what could make me happier.
I have been working on some moody forest paintings inspired by the winter gloom of the Pacific Northwest.
This particular piece is an 18″x18″ acrylic painting.
