Two small paintings headed to this pop up gallery in Genesis, Idaho. It is a fall show and some of my fire paintings were requested!
Today I dropped of ten paintings at the Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana.
A really nice contemporary art gallery in a fun Montana town. If you are in the area the gallery is definitely worth a visit. Always a beautiful mix of art on display. I am excited to have some of my work at Radius now!
The title of this painting is everything.
Hard to believe it is already the middle of October. The snow on the mountains and falling leaves certainly aren’t subtle reminders. I have been working on small paintings, experimenting and exploring. Now time is getting away from me so I have to get serious about my next solo show. I will be delivering work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in early January which seems soon!
Another painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. This one has some lovely and subtle color transitions. I have found it difficult to get an accurate photo of the painting but this easel shot wasn’t bad.
The days are getting shorter but they have been incredibly beautiful.
This painting is off to it’s new home today. There is an idyllic dream quality that is compelling and surreal about this one. Like a memory that is just a little too sweet to be entirely real.
The glowing sun hides behind the forested ridge. I love that blast of light, the atmosphere charged once more as the sun is disappearing. The trees losing their details in the transition.
Atmosphere and light are always a source of inspiration. I am working on a number of paintings relating to the subtle shifts I am observing in North Idaho.
Collecting high resolution photographs of your art is critical. At the very least it is something worth looking at later to see how your work has changed and hopefully evolved. I frequently fail to capture images of my paintings and it’s a shame to sell work without retaining a digital version.
Over the weekend I did manage to take some photographs of my recent works. These aren’t the highest resolution, I scaled them down for the website.
I was motivated by a deadline, it always seems to take a deadline!
As we march forward into fall I have noticed the changes. The sun is lower in the sky and with more clouds it has made for some glorious skies. It also hits the lake shore with startling intensity at times. This is the inspiration for my most recent works. These forest paintings are 10″x8″.
