Shining (memory)

Shining – 14”x11”, acrylic

An older piece from a few years back. This one has that elusive magic that drives me forward. Making a living as an artist is a difficult task. More than simply earning enough to pay the bills. For me it is a calling and the core of this one and only life. I know most people don’t really understand that, even close friends.

To Dusk (SOLD)

To Dusk – 24”x30”, acrylic

I was really pleased to hear that this painting was sold! The sale happen through Horizontal Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole. It was originally shipped to the gallery with “gold moon” which you can see in the video at the bottom. Gold moon was a 12”x12” painting and sold the day it arrived.

From the Ashes?

My new IG account: @BrianSostrom

My old 163k IG account was hacked two days ago. I felt like abandoning the platform. I decided to keep fighting to get my account back and start a new account to keep pushing forward in the meantime. I have been overwhelmed with the support I have received from so many talented artists, truly restoring my faith in humanity. There are terrible people in the world, we all see it. There are also some really great generous folks. Although my new account is tiny, the people that are along for the ride have been so great. Happy Sunday, hope everyone is enjoying this weekend of summer!
