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!
I mailed this 10″x10″ acrylic painting to Indiana this week. I’m staying put but my paintings are enjoying a bit of travel.
I am not actually going to Spain but one of my recent small painting is. I posted a video of this 8″x8″ painting I called ” Everything” on instagram and a fellow DMed me to inquire about purchasing it… and so off to Barcelona it goes.
I just finished painting these 5″x5″ paintings. They are inspired by late afternoon light hitting the forests around Lake Pend Oreille.
I plan on doing a larger painting based on these studies, hopefully I will be able to have that posted by next week.
Distant storms are Dramatic and inspiring to watch. This was an attempt at capturing an impressive downpour on a 16″x16″ board.
Three atmospheric landscapes I have recently completed.
I am experimenting with some new materials and a different substrate than plexiglass. Exploring the behavior of new mediums can be both exciting and difficult but it feels like a bit of adventure and keeps my mind turning.
Another 14″x14″ waterscape painting of Lake Pend Oreille.
Here is a collection of 10’x10′ studies I have painted this week. Lake Pend Oreille is frozen along much of it’s shoreline reluctantly giving up the ice to March. Giant clouds roll across the landscape in a constant dramatic shift. Photos don’t seem to do the beauty justice and my paintings barely hint at the spectacle…. we do what we can.
