One of two new paintings that have shipped to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming.
Final studio capture of this winter scene. Inspired by my short walk to the art studio. Winter has been lovely but I am looking forward to a change in the season.
Locals are calling it “the big melt off”, which is definitely the case. Winter doesn’t really give up the ghost around here until April so it isn’t time to put away the snowblower just yet. This is one of my favorite winter paintings of the season. It is also my favorite painting size at the moment.
I was happy to learn that this painting was sold through Abend Gallery, in Denver, Colorado. It’s a funny thing I rarely here from galleries about sales… checks just show up in the mailbox. I am so grateful I get to spend my days painting. The paychecks are sporadic but so much more meaningful.
Another small snow painting. This one from the deck of my studio which has far too much snow weight on it. I should have done more shoveling before it turned rock hard. I guess painting wins out on most of the projects I need to do.
A large new painting finished in the studio. This one will most likely be part of my solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The show will be this June, dates to follow.
We have been buried in snow for months with months to go. I enjoy the scenery but it can also be difficult… paying my respects to the winter.
As I work on paintings for my solo show in June, I am thinking about my previous exhibit at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. “Color Box Water” was special, it was never on the maybe list for that show (All of the paintings were sold at the gallery).
I am working on a lot of large pieces for the next exhibit. I am also taking a step back from shipping all of my work away to a variety of galleries and or selling as I paint. I am going to assemble a powerful collection and carefully decide what goes and stays. The next solo show is in June, 2022 at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I will be varnishing and framing this painting during the weekend. It is a commission that will be displayed with an older painting of my called “the hermit”.
