I just finished this painting last night. It had lingered around the studio in an awkward state for a couple weeks. Something was needed and then it all came together!
This painting is another on large board (24″x30″). I am trying to put together a strong collection for two upcoming shows this winter. Both shows are in Western Washington and they overlap which will make it especially difficult!
Here are some paintings on the counter this morning in my studio. I will packaging two of them up to mail out tomorrow! One is bound for Australia and one for Wisconsin.
These two paintings are each 24″x30″. They are acrylic/open acrylic paintings.
The terrible forest fires of the west this summer were heartbreaking. The only silver lining was the incredible sunrise and sunsets but I hope we don’t see more fires in coming years… seems to be the way things are headed though.
This painting is 24”x36” acrylic and open acrylic paint.
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.
I have returned again to an old theme… the isolated chair. I am trying to put together some small works for a show at a little gallery in Idaho. I have a few big solo shows coming up soon so my time has been very tight… not to mention that pesky day job that had been keeping the lights on…
This painting is 12”x12”, some interesting results that I will keep in my mind for future work. I ended up selling this painting first thing this morning so now I need another piece for the previously mentioned show.
It is good to be painting.
What a depressing week of news it has been, the world seems awful cold at times.
I just keep my head in the clouds with this new painting. It has been years since I listened to the Traveling Wilburys but they sound mighty good today (RIP TP).
These four paintings are now at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp Washington. I am having a show called “Darkening Light” at that Gallery and it opens this Friday (running through early November). I brought approximately 20 paintings in total for the show.
Fun to hang some paintings up temporarily on the studio wall. Some of these were part of a commission and have now moved out.
I installed some rails to hang paintings on which will help keep the studio organized and more easily allow me to observe my recent works.
