My sister and brother in law made the treck to North Idaho to visit over the 4th of July weekend. We had a lot of fun on the water enjoying the rewards of summer.
I sent her home with a couple of paintings she was fond of!
Exciting electric display this evening in North Idaho!
I just finished painting these 5″x5″ paintings. They are inspired by late afternoon light hitting the forests around Lake Pend Oreille.
I plan on doing a larger painting based on these studies, hopefully I will be able to have that posted by next week.
Distant storms are Dramatic and inspiring to watch. This was an attempt at capturing an impressive downpour on a 16″x16″ board.
Three atmospheric landscapes I have recently completed.
I am experimenting with some new materials and a different substrate than plexiglass. Exploring the behavior of new mediums can be both exciting and difficult but it feels like a bit of adventure and keeps my mind turning.
Another 14″x14″ waterscape painting of Lake Pend Oreille.
I am donating this painting to the Pend Oreille Arts Council for an annual fundraiser they have in town. I will hope that it helps a bit and goes to a happy home!
Three atmospheric paintings recently completed. Experimenting with a combination of acrylic and oil paint. I am attaching a video sequence as well, the image loses something in translation.
Moonlight is mesmerizing, it’s not news that it has a romantic feel but there is something so hypnotic about a big moon casting shadows and lighting up the darkness with such interesting and subtle colors. I have done very few moon paintings but it is something I always mean to put time into.
This weekend I was working on some atmospheric cloudscapes, nothing unusual for me. I was also unpacking boxes in my new studio space, more on that at a later date. I found some small boards that I had readied for painting at least a year ago and packed away. So I decided to play around with some nocturnal imagery. Ultimately I want to do some really good sized paintings but for now it is nice to get some forward progress into the night.
