Long summer days and the slow fade to night.
I took a little time over the weekend to paint a few small color studies. I am working out some thoughts for my next 20” x 20” painting.
Final capture of this piece I sold last week. Now I just need to sign it, varnish and frame the painting! I always postpone those final details… reluctant to commit to the permanence I suppose.
More inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille. These long days are my favorite.
A little island dream.
After a days work I shuffled off in my kayak. The landscape is always mind blowing. I realize all of my efforts toward beauty are nonsense.
A little isolated getaway. There are a number of island in Lake Pend Oreille. They are always intriguing. This painting isn’t based on a particular island.
The rain and sun of spring are a source of inspiration. I decided to break down the imagery into something of an abstracted pattern. The result is a bit hypnotic and perhaps meditative.
The paint is often the subject of my work as much as any imagery.
A bit of inspiration from the home water, Lake Pend Oreille. The atmosphere can be pure magic when the clouds are moving. It doesn’t get old for me.
Two short videos from this morning and evening. I also did some solid painting but it doesn’t compare.
