This is part of a collection of paintings I am doing on commission. The painting is 7″x9″ and it won’t actually have this frame as the client has something else in mind. This frame actually covers too much of the painting in my mind, when a work is this small every bit counts!
I shipped a series of three paintings to a collector in Western Washington this weekend. They are all acrylic paintings on 24″x30″ dibondi panel.
This one is on its way to New York!
This little 9″x7″ painting was a little experiment. I am playing around with some ideas with an eye towards larger work.
I painted this on a paintbook by edge gear pro. Really nice piece of equipment. It has a light mounted on top which especially helpful.
I made this little video of the painting in progress. It is on a paintbook by “edge pro gear”. A pretty slick setup made for outdoor painting but it works great in a studio as well. It has a light mounted on top which provides amazing lighting to work with. It uses magnets to hold the artwork to the box.

Lake Pend Oreille has been a source of inspiration for a number of years. This is a fairly typical view when the weather is feeling gloomy.
This is a 24″x30″ painting I recently got back from a local show. I regretted not getting a proper photograph of it before the show but now I have one! This one is bound for A solo show on Bainbridge Island in a month!
This 16″x16″ acrylic painting is fresh from yesterdays easel. I took a break from the work required for the two upcoming solo shows and just enjoyed the process of creating… it is after all everything.
This is a painting I have entered into the “large formats” contest on minted. It is 24″x30″, if you want to help me out give it a vote with the attached link!
I am excited to be mailing off more work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have been sending work there for more than a year now and it is nice to have another venue for my paintings.
I am doing a final coat of varnish on these paintings before I ship them to California. I have struggled over the years with the best way to seal my acrylic paintings. Acrylic tends to stick to acrylic so if you do not varnish the work you will end up with a mess at some point! I am currently using Liquitex professional high gloss varnish. So far I am very pleased as it dries quickly and creates a really nice protective layer!
