Heavy Clouds

I recently finished these two 16″x16″ dramatic cloud paintings. They will be part of the collection of paintings headed to Bainbridge Island for a solo exhibit. The show is at BPA, I have never been there but am looking forward to it! I have been to Bainbridge Island a number of times, beautiful place across the sound from Seattle.

The High and Low

The High and Low 16

I seem to be painting a lot of clouds these days. Giant powerful and full of mood they have always fascinated me so I am simply following my interests. This particular painting is 16″x16″ acrylic / open acrylic painting on cradled board.

As a painter I am striving to paint work that feels unique and new with a fresh vibrant use of color and mark making. The goal is a bit like shooting at the moon, I realize it is impossible but it doesn’t stop me. This particular painting is simple but encapsulates a lot of what I am striving for.

Dimming Light

This 24”x 18” painting has shipped off to a collector in San Francisco, CA. I was saving it for one of my two looming show deadlines but a fella has to make some money when he can!

This painting really has a beautiful apocalyptic vibe which was fun in the studio, plus we find ourselves at 2 minutes to midnight. Hopefully, the purchaser will enjoy this piece in the remaining two minutes!
