This painting captures the spring transition here on Lake Pend Oreille. Currently much less snow than when I painted this a few weeks back.
Today I am shipping this painting to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming.
Memory is a funny thing. Some of it is etched pretty deep into my mind, some of it takes flight. I learned the acronym “ROYGBIV” in a high school science class. I can’t look at a rainbow with out that popping into my mind. It is annoying, thanks school!
I sold this painting last weekend while it was a WIP through my Instagram stories. It always picks me up, selling work unexpectedly. I immediately waste the money on art supplies, circle of life.
Timbered, 16”x12” acrylic
I love the somber quality of fog drifting through the forest. Today is sunny and that’s not bad either.
This is part of my “Woodland” series. There is a video about the creation on my YouTube channel.
I noticed it was bright and clear this morning just after 6:00 AM. The days are getting longer and I am excited!
More snow coming, more winter paintings ahead. It felt like spring was coming early, I knew it was just a temporary state. Just another excuse to paint some more winter imagery. There is a feeling I am chasing with some of these works… so more opportunities.
Continuing on with my forest imagery. I am putting together a collection of paintings for my “Woodlands” exhibit opening in May. The exhibit is at Higher Art Gallery in Traverse City, Michigan.
Lightning helps clear a person’s mind. I am chased off the lake by storms at least twice every summer.
It is nice to work on a larger scale again. I have some 40″x30″ panels ready so will be working even larger!
Starting a series of paintings focusing on the forest. I live in snow country so there will be some winter imagery, don’t be alarmed.
I am painting a group of 5″x5″ paintings for an upcoming exhibit with Abend Gallery. In the future I want to work on a mix of tiny and large paintings. Small works are such a great way to experiment and play with color schemes etc.
