I have been working hard on a large commission since returning from my solo show in Astoria. I believe I will have it wrapped up this weekend! I am then framing it and shipping it off to wine country in California. I will post a finished photo before I package it up.
Another painting from the show I am having in Astoria, Oregon at the McVarish Gallery. The exhibition runs until July 12th so if you are in the area, give it a look!
This is a very recent open acrylic painting. The edges of day and night are always inspiring and contemplative. The mood can be tranquil but there is also the reminder of our time passing.
This is a 16″x20″ acrylic painting. As summer approaches I wanted to capture snow disappearing from the mountains… “between the snowman and the rain”. I have painted two northwest alpine scenes along these lines. They both have an ethereal ghostly presence that I really enjoy. I will post the other painting soon.
This is a detail from “Snoqualmie”.
These four small paintings are acrylic on panel. I finally varnished and signed them so I can mail them to a buyer today!
Small paintings are enjoyable but I do miss the freedom of movement available on a larger surface. Generally it is good to switch up sizes and approach to keep the sense of discovery alive!
Two 16″x20″ wave paintings I recently completed. I am focusing on mark making and blending colors on the boards in order to create a vibrant feel.
These paintings sold before I could post them. Luckily the buyer is allowing me to hang onto them until early July so that they can be part of the Astoria, Oregon show.
This painting has done a bit of traveling and been in a couple shows. Large art is often exciting but difficult to pack around. I was planning on taking this painting to my upcoming exhibits but hung it in my house instead!
This acrylic painting is one of three in a series. Yesterday I sold one of the set but the buyer agreed to let me bring it to the Astoria show, June 9th, which was great! I was not planning on another show so soon and had signed up for a bunch of commissions. I have too much to do but I am really thankful to have people interested in my work.
This is part of a collection of paintings I am doing on commission. The painting is 7″x9″ and it won’t actually have this frame as the client has something else in mind. This frame actually covers too much of the painting in my mind, when a work is this small every bit counts!
I shipped a series of three paintings to a collector in Western Washington this weekend. They are all acrylic paintings on 24″x30″ dibondi panel.
