Just to break up the landscapes I painted this rainbow trout. It was a fun change of pace, a lot of paint manipulation and experimenting. The painting difficult to capture with a photograph so I am including a closeup that is more inline with the feel of the painting.
This painting has done a bit of traveling and been in a couple shows. Large art is often exciting but difficult to pack around. I was planning on taking this painting to my upcoming exhibits but hung it in my house instead!
This one is on its way to New York!
Lake Pend Oreille has been a source of inspiration for a number of years. This is a fairly typical view when the weather is feeling gloomy.
This 24″x30″ painting is a little glimpse of summer in the middle of our winter.
This is a large work in progress (36”x48”). The scale of paintings like this is exciting but on a deep cradled board it renders it very expensive to ship!
I have been working on three large brooding paintings. They will make a small solo show tour this year and next.
As the seasons change and the snow marches down the mountains I am seeing a lot more days like I represented in this painting. This one is 48”x36” painted on a 2” cradled board. I recently sold off a big painting so I had the perfect space available on my studio wall.
I have a few solo shows coming up in the next 5 months so odds are this one will be doing some traveling.
One of the four 24″x24″ Lake Pend Oreille paintings I recently completed on commission.
Three 5″x5″ cloud studies.
I found some small boards that were prepped for painting while unpacking some boxes in my studio… so I painted on them! It is a nice change to change the scale of my work. It is also a reminder how much more I like simple fresh marks on a painting.
Exciting electric display this evening in North Idaho!
