Bringing it back home today with a new painting in the studio. Inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. I always think of this as my home water. It has been for more than 6 years now.
WIP in the studio today. Hard winds kicking up on the lake today, making for a timely painting.
We had a pretty loud lightning and hail storm on Lake Pend Oreille yesterday. A little bit of excitement as winter slowly gives up the ghost.
This painting is being shipped to a buyer in Florida. So many sales in Florida these days. I know have some friends moving to Florida, I am still in the snow country.
Just a note the title has nothing to do with pessimism. There is a town called Hope, Idaho… east of me where I often catch the moon rising. I don’t generally explain titles but this one, for once, wasn’t dour.
Latest painting, moon as inspiration. Nocturnal paintings are always interesting to work on. This one was inspired by my part of the world.
Update: this one was just sold, good news as I ordered more art supplies and frames yesterday.
A large new painting in the studio this morning. Continuing work on these 24”x36” panels, great size with room to roam. Inspiration is from my home water, Lake Pend Oreille.
Another painting inspired by the season. Heartache echoing across the years.
A scene from my studio with a new painting on the easel. I always loved this Damien Jurado song as well…
A painting from two years ago. Here in North Idaho there was recently a good chance of seeing the aurora borealis but the clouds moved in and we missed it. When I have seen the lights from Idaho it has been a dull flicker on the lake, beautiful nonetheless.
I framed and shipped this commissioned painting to its new home in California. It is based on the view from property they own on Lake Pend Oreille.
