I was fortunate enough to spend Thanksgiving in Hawaii with family. Grateful for the trip and inspiration.
Drawing inspiration from the low autumn sun. This time of year can bring a sense of melancholy. I also get excited for the massive hours of studio time ahead. I am leaning into the season and finding some magic for my work.
This small painting just sold through Grand Bohemian Gallery in St Augustine, Florida. This was a painting I did last Fall. I find myself again, this year, painting forest scenes in intense autumn sunlight. Clearly this time of year that low sun brings inspiration.
A new painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. It is always amazing how quickly the colors and values shift as the sun rises. I have become fairly obsessed in my later days.
A small painting that is now available at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
An older painting that was purchased a couple years ago by some close friends. They took a long vacation to North Idaho to visit. This marks the last day of their stay.
A small colorful painting on the studio table. I have now painted a lot of 10” and 12” panels. I wanted to do many more but I need to focus on some of my commissions so these will be on the back burner.
Another painting in my ongoing series of 12” squares. It has been a nice break working at this modest scale.
It comes with the change to fall. The sun lower in the sky. A certain unavoidable melancholy. This painting was done exactly one year ago…
My solo show at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina has just concluded. This piece is still available for purchase through the gallery for a limited time.
I will not be having another show until June of 2022. All the cliches of time are true as I get older… there is a lot of work to be done between now and then! My next exhibit will be at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I will post the dates when the time is near.
