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.
Another moody lake painting. Lake Pend Oreille is so dramatic, a constant source of inspiration.
This is going to be the last 10″ painting I will do for a while. I am going to start painting larger works for a show that is just around the corner. What I have been working on the last month or so are essentially studies.
