My two finished cow portraits. Today I am shipping them to the little pink house gallery for a Fall show. The LPHG is a small gallery in North Idaho. I usually send them paintings a couple times per year. This LPHG and Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana are the closest galleries I work with.
Painting a couple of cow portraits for a semi local Idaho gallery.
An ancient light casting warmth and fear. Dancing to a rhythm it blends into the night. The question lost with a crack and spark.
The fall colors have returned and are beautiful. Snowbirds are leaving and the weather is 20 degrees below average. We already had some snow, it sounds like this winter is going to be a long one. This painting is from late January and it seems appropriate.
Some small pieces while I wrap up some very large work. It is difficult for me to focus strictly on framing and varnishing… had to squeeze in a little painting.
Nature and art are both free of sentimentality, somehow I am not.
I live on Lake Pend Oreille which makes me pretty fortunate. The lake is the largest and deepest lake in Idaho. Most important of all it is incredibly beautiful. I feel inspired and in awe of the beauty, it is my muse.
This little painting went to Abend Gallery a while back. I am busy working on a body of work for a Vashon Island Exhibit in October then switching to smaller works like this for a number of galleries.
I was inspired to paint a few forest scenes. I live in a heavily timbered part of the planet. This first painting is reminiscent of the view from a small window in my studio. I like the wall of trees and occasionally spot turkeys, grouse and deer passing through on their way to the water.
Another small study potentially leading to a larger work. I have worked up a few of these little waterscapes now. I am going to begin a larger painting this Memorial Monday, along these lines.
