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.
I was happy to learn that this big painting sold through Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. It was inspired by a late season boat ride last fall… the approaching winter always breaks my heart a little. Much to love about the dark season, solitude and painting… still it always brings a little extra melancholy.
This painting really captures our dramatic skies of the season. Clouds pressing in but the blue of summer still shining through.
Clouds and light continue to fascinate and inspire. This is an energetic take inspired by the morning sun.
Today in the studio. Capturing a little bit of summer on a board. Our ground squirrels have already started hibernating and now the hummingbirds have vanished. It is still August, It all seems too soon.
Some large paintings in the studio here in Idaho. They are now on display at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, NC.
I am busy painting in the studio. This one is brand new. I have primed and prepped a lot of fairly small panels and am diving in.
I often think of myself as a painter of psychological landscapes. As much as I hate to label myself this is a description I have found suits my enthusiasms and interests. Painting is only worthwhile if it is in pursuit of some larger meaning, that is what keeps me digging.
