Western Burn

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.

Reflections 9”x7”

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.

Tunnel then Jubilation

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.
