I am having some paintings professionally scanned. I generally take high resolution photos but wanted to compare the results, scanning is better.
This painting sold through Abend Gallery, part of my current solo show. Labor Day weekend started with a fire on the mountain I live below. Some folks lost everything and the forest caught fire, luckily it seems to be out now. I paint this sort of thing but I don’t take it lightly. Fire is amazing, beautiful and utterly terrifying.
Small study of mood and forest. I have managed to work away a beautiful summer, they disappear so quickly now.
This little painting went to Abend Gallery a while back. I am busy working on a body of work for a Vashon Island Exhibit in October then switching to smaller works like this for a number of galleries.
I have returned from Pendleton, closing out my most recent solo show. I came over to the studio to prep some paintings for shipment and decided to get a photo of this painting.
Safe travels on this Labor Day weekend!
