Having some fun with a bit of surf in the studio. The lake is my constant muse but I love the ocean too. I have included a video so you can get a better feel for the painting in the studio.
This one feels like a special painting. I haven’t decided if it should be part of my solo show or a group show I was invited to participate in featuring the moon as a theme.
A conversation about my art, my approach and making a living as an artist.
Today started in a flurry of painting. Then I stopped to order some frames and do a podcast with a fellow painter. Back to painting on this very Good Friday.
Final studio capture of this dramatic cloudscape. I am still putting together my solo show collection, photographing some of the finished pieces.
More inspiration from winter sunlight in North Idaho.
Some of the most dramatic colors at sunset occur in the opposite direction of the descending sun. A wild punch of color illuminates the mountains to the east. I ran through the snow to film this and the color was intense and fading fast. Summer is gorgeous but that low winter light is magic.
Spending a little time focusing on the moon. With the short days of winter the moon has more time to shine.
A little inspiration from Hawaii. I went most of my life never visiting the islands but traveled there twice this year. Lately I have been fantasizing about retiring there… I probably won’t retire just fall over.
Another small snow painting. This one from the deck of my studio which has far too much snow weight on it. I should have done more shoveling before it turned rock hard. I guess painting wins out on most of the projects I need to do.
