Sunsets and Endings

My solo show in Pendleton, Oregon is opening tomorrow at the Pendleton Center for the Arts. Besides all the varnishing, framing and packing I also spend some time trying to capture high resolution images of my newest work before sending them away. These are two 14″x11″ paintings that will be part of the exhibit!

Storm Series

A collection of three 20″x16″ open acrylic paintings. These were inspired by the impressive beauty of Lake Pend Oreille. Storms periodically move across the lake with such a sense of power it is a humbling spectacle. These aren’t my first stormy paintings and I’m sure they will not be my last.

This collection along with 30 other original paintings will be on display in Pendleton, Oregon at the Pendleton Center for the Arts August 2nd-31st.

Commission

I wrapped up this large commission painting. It is being delivered to the new owners today! I hope that they will enjoy this tranquil piece for years to come.

The painting is 60″x22″ on a 3″ cradled board, so it is heavy. It is also surprisingly difficult to get a photograph of something this size without reflections or lighting issues. I ran out of time and simply had my Dad take a photo of me holding it!
