This is another 24″x24″ painting I very recently completed as part of a commission.
Bold lighting elements and soft moody atmospheric work is seemingly simple but is very challenging to paint with acrylic and open acrylic paint.
I am drawn to enigmatic imagery and though this subject is straight forward it still has a bit of mystery…. that’s what it’s all about for me.
Gathering up some paintings in my studio that were commissions. I painted four 24″x24″ paintings for a great family that has a house on Lake Pend Oreille. Painting these was a real pleasure knowing they would be hanging lakeside on this beautiful North Idaho lake.
I will be posting more images of the four paintings along with two additional paintings very soon!
Last night was the opening for my solo show at Crossroads Carnegie Art Center in Baker City, Oregon.
It is always fun to see a lot of your work hanging together in a show! I believe I brought approximately 53 paintings to this particular show.
I gave a rambling art talk followed by a few questions. Then I hung around and talked to the kind hearted art patrons for a couple hours… now back to Idaho!
I have been busily preparing work for my upcoming show. I decided to bring some smaller paintings with some of my larger work to this exhibit. These twelve paintings are all 10″x10″ in size, they were all painted over a seven month period. Signing varnishing and adding hangers all takes time but it is part of the deal.
I have a new solo show coming up the month of May in Baker City, Oregon. The exhibit will be at “Crossroads Carnegie Art Center”, coming pretty fast on the heels of my last show which is a little stressful.
I am looking forward to the road trip and a bit of adventure so I’ll have to put my paints aside and break out the jibber jabber (I only have so many words). Looking at this poster I’m also remembering I need new tires pretty soon.
Three atmospheric paintings recently completed. Experimenting with a combination of acrylic and oil paint. I am attaching a video sequence as well, the image loses something in translation.
This afternoon I conducted my first painting workshop. I had 8 students and we spent a few hours playing with plexiglass painting. This took place at the closing of my solo show at Lewis-Clark State College.
I just posted these 10″x 10″ paintings on Ugallery. It is an art website that sells and markets artwork. They take a 50% commission but they also do help get your work seen. As paintings pile up I am starting to look at more ways to sell my work. I really enjoy having my paintings in a physical gallery but these days there are a lot of other options!
