Painting some small works for an upcoming exhibit. Considering a new life as a hand model.
This painting will soon be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have a solo show there the month of February and I am super excited about it!
I painted this one three or four weeks ago. Just got around to taking a high resolution photograph this morning. I still have so much varnishing, framing and photography I have to do before the show. So many details go into the preparation of an exhibit. I just want to paint but it’s all part of the gig… I can’t really complain.
I find myself chasing ethereal beauty in my work. Trying to find that otherworldly magic that is impossible. Once in a while I catch a glimpse and it keeps me running.
Inspiration from the biggest lake in Idaho! This painting is going to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California! My solo show is opening there the beginning of February 2019. That year is frighteningly futuristic.
This time of year light does seem like something either remembered or glimpsed shining on a distant mountain. Light is the star of the show in this painting.
I am going to be putting coats of varnish on this piece today, then time to frame!
This painting is shipping to England today!
I am spending a lot of time varnishing, framing and packing art. So much work goes into each painting, I need an unpaid assistant!
This is another painting inspired by mist and morning light.
I have been painting a lot of work this size lately. It has enough surface area to have a bit of freedom. I am going to start treating this as my minimum size. I have a lot of prepped 16″x20″, 18″x24″ and 20″x24″ panels I am excited to dive into next.
I am pretty obsessed with light and atmosphere. This painting is inspired by countless mornings on the water. I say countless but I still have not spent nearly enough mornings like that. Sometimes it’s worth getting up.
A little landscape from my neck of the woods. The natural world always providing ample drama and inspiration.
As we march forward into fall I have noticed the changes. The sun is lower in the sky and with more clouds it has made for some glorious skies. It also hits the lake shore with startling intensity at times. This is the inspiration for my most recent works. These forest paintings are 10″x8″.
