Another strangely optimistic painting in the studio. I have been obsessively listening to news podcasts and watching just about every other news source on television. It always feels like the end of days and just seems to get worst. I don’t have much faith in the human animal… but here is a bit of visual hope.
I took a few more high resolution photos yesterday, this was one capture. Today I have some paintings to varnish and prepare for framing. More importantly I am going to be painting!
I just finished this painting yesterday afternoon. The backlit clouds and intensity of hue are pretty effective!
I just sold this painting to a collector in Wyoming. The painting was inspired by a short drive to Montana. Happy to live in this part of the world. Buyer was through Horizon Fine Art Gallery.
This was part of an ethereal collection of sky paintings I recently finished. Minimal sky paintings freed from the constraints of land.
This tall painting is bound for my upcoming show on Vashon Island. Inspired by the shocking beauty of Lake McDonald in Glacier National Park.
I found a couple small boards in my studio. Now they are cloudscapes!
Three 24″x24″ paintings on the studio counter. Sometimes it is good just to start painting… no clear destination. These cloudscape paintings were freeing to paint. I am not sure if I will keep these but it doesn’t really matter.
I have some large square panels I am playing with in my studio!
I was going to take the day off. I find myself behind and needing to get more work framed and shipped out. Still with the sub freezing temperatures not a bad way to spend the day. I just framed this one and will be shipping it to California tomorrow!
