Five Works

Five new paintings shipped to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming! I am excited to be sending more art to Jackson Hole. Such a beautiful place and a strong art community.

Sacramento

My solo show is ongoing at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, CA. It will run the month of February.

I went down for the second Saturday art opening! It was fun to talk to art enthusiasts and buyers. It was a very successful show for the gallery and myself. So much work goes into such an event, you never know what will happen. I keep my mind focused on the art… it’s all there is to do.

As a painter I tend to be very solitary, in my own head. Funny how much I find myself talking at these shows…

On the Wind

Messenger 30”x24” acrylic on cradled board

I have been working steadily on some powerful storm imagery. This particular piece is one of my favorites.

I did not have specific plans for these, just driven to create them. Horizon Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, wanted them. They ended up selling this one before I could get it varnished. So Messenger, will be shipping directly to California. The other three will heading to Wyoming. I will post images of them all when they leave North Idaho.

Light and Fluffy

Rising 16”x20” acrylic on wood panel

Light and fluffy, it’s the way I like my pancakes. It is also an accurate description of this particular cloud painting. This one was a bit of a challenge to paint. I wanted to combine that brilliant floating feel with my sculpted mark making approach.

The world is a light box

Winter Light 20”x24” acrylic on wood panel

A photograph of me holding my painting “winter light”. Yesterday the sky was a bright grey, the ground white, and I was standing in a giant light box!

This painting and the final collection will be heading to California today. Ready for my solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California!

Elliott Fouts Gallery!

I have a solo exhibit at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, Ca. The show takes place February 2nd through February 28th.

I have around 23 finished paintings that I have chosen for the show. Now I need to get the work there! I had considered flying down with a couple giant travel cases but decided it would be more cost effective to ship the paintings over a couple weeks time. So this week I will be packing and shipping like a maniac!

If anyone is in the greater Sacramento area I hope you will check out the show! There is a reception February 9th!

Taking another look…

Down the River 20”x16” acrylic painting

I revisited a painting from late 2018 that I wasn’t entirely satisfied with. I am gathering paintings for my February solo show making hard decisions. This particular piece was on the edge but now it will be attending the exhibit! The show is at the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California.

Job to do (prepping for my solo show)

Pend Oreille acrylic on wood panel

Today I will be varnishing and photographing much of my work. As eager as I am to paint I have a looming deadline for my show solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. The show is the month of February so I need to get my work photographed, varnished, framed, packaged and shipped very soon! Deadlines keep me running!

In a mood

Whispering 24”x18” acrylic on wood panel

I love painting moody water and cloudscapes. I tend to turn them into something I think of as an emotional landscape. Expressive and full of motion, a place to put my feelings I suppose.

This is one I just finished yesterday. I will be working on some more along this theme!
