I have new representation in Jackson Hole, Wyoming! I have taken many trips to Wyoming and Jackson in particular. A really amazing town with a lot of great art galleries and artists.
Yesterday’s painting, it felt like a pretty good day in the studio.
Another new painting in the studio. This one is bound for Elliott Fouts Gallery, that hour glass is draining quickly! I need to deliver these paintings in early January.
Again I find myself focusing on filtered sun and a dramatic sky with this painting. I have some exciting plans that are just a bit of a departure from my typical work… stay tuned!
I also have some paintings available at a super cool gallery in Missoula. Check out the link!
A cool little painting from April. I was experimenting with framing options, this one worked well. Since then I have switched things up significantly. I am now painting on thicker wood panels and using a more minimal floating frame. Everything is always changing, hopefully evolving… it is good to pause and reflect at times.
A dream like painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille, you know the usual!
I am now working on 16″x20″ & 18″x24″ boards. Time to make larger works for upcoming shows!
I just completed this nocturnal painting. I have a growing collection of moon related art, most will be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento in January!
Another cloud painting inspired by the low winter sun of the north! Pictured in progress on my studio table.
As winter’s dark slips into our daily lives I am feeling inspired by the changing atmosphere. The sun staying low creating dramatic light and shadow. I am also a fool for giant clouds crawling across the land. It seems I like my landscapes moody.
This is another painting inspired by mist and morning light.
I have been painting a lot of work this size lately. It has enough surface area to have a bit of freedom. I am going to start treating this as my minimum size. I have a lot of prepped 16″x20″, 18″x24″ and 20″x24″ panels I am excited to dive into next.
Looking around the chaos of my studio it is plain to see light inspires me. As we head into the darkest part of the year the sunlight is all the more dramatic and inspirational.
These two paintings were worked up together after a very early morning on the lake. Spending time in the studio looking at your work and shuffling it around is time well spent. Nothing physically to show for it but it is valuable just to reflect.
