Great Light (SOLD)

Great Light – 20”x20”, acrylic

I was happy to hear from a collector in Florida, she just purchased this painting. It was a studio favorite, really captures my favorite summer vibes on Lake Pend Oreille here in North Idaho. I recently shipped it to Moment Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. They made the sale, I am so grateful to the galleries that represent me. Sales are getting tougher these days, and I am a terrible salesperson!

When it was hanging in the studio!

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.

This painting is being shipped to a buyer in Florida. So many sales in Florida these days. I know have some friends moving to Florida, I am still in the snow country.

Just a note the title has nothing to do with pessimism. There is a town called Hope, Idaho… east of me where I often catch the moon rising. I don’t generally explain titles but this one, for once, wasn’t dour.

I often think of myself as a painter of psychological landscapes. As much as I hate to label myself this is a description I have found suits my enthusiasms and interests. Painting is only worthwhile if it is in pursuit of some larger meaning, that is what keeps me digging.
