On the Wind

Messenger 30”x24” acrylic on cradled board

I have been working steadily on some powerful storm imagery. This particular piece is one of my favorites.

I did not have specific plans for these, just driven to create them. Horizon Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, wanted them. They ended up selling this one before I could get it varnished. So Messenger, will be shipping directly to California. The other three will heading to Wyoming. I will post images of them all when they leave North Idaho.

A little color

Slipping 14”x11” acrylic on wood panel

I have been working on very moody paintings. It is the kind of work I love.

To mix things up I thought I would try to capture the brilliance of some of our recent sunsets. They seem especially dramatic after a gloomy day. The clouds lifting to an explosion of light.

Three Winter Paintings

Sentries 14”x11” acrylic on panel

In North Idaho winter is a very real season. I love to be in the studio working this time of year! I don’t feel guilty about being inside, and it’s such a beautiful view. I decided to capture a little of the winter feel in these small paintings. I will probably do a couple larger paintings on the theme soon.

I hope everyone is staying warm!

Moving to Australia

10”x10” acrylic paintings

I am not moving to Australia but these two paintings are! Yesterday afternoon I shipped them off so they have a long voyage ahead.

I have only been to Australia once, many years ago. I went to Sydney which is where these works are going. It is such a beautiful city. I wouldn’t mind taking a trip to Australia now to escape the winter. One of these years I will have to get back!

Friday!

Crushing 19.5”x9.5” acrylic on board

Friday is just another day for me these days. One advantage of the winter in North Idaho, it encourages me to be hold up in the studio!

I am playing around with some waves trying to capture the sense of power and beauty. I will be starting on a large commission and wanted to do some experimenting first. This painting isn’t the direction I will be taking but it is an interesting piece.

Waves rolling in the studio

Time’s Cycle 21”x8” acrylic on panel

I have been swamped with work lately, my studio is a mess but no time to pause. I am doing some wave studies in preparation for a large commission. This first go is the same aspect ratio as the final painting. Giving me a chance to play around with some compositions and color schemes.
