Morning Comes


…and evening follows. 

This is an 8″x8″ acrylic painting. I have always liked tonalism and an overcast morning really displays that kind of magic. Now that summer is finally here we are seeing beautiful bright mornings, I will play around with some of that imagery, never enough summer days in this short life.

Dark Reveals Light


A quick little 10″x10″ painting. The simple theme of light and dark are a consistent pursuit in my work. 

I paint with acrylics, I don’t use white or overly opaque pigments so there is a bit of a parallel to watercolor painting. I preserve the bright beneath and essentially darken the entire image. The title of my next show plays into that, I will post about that at a later date.

Elliott Fouts Gallery 

I am pleased to be sending off five new paintings to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have been selling work there since the end of 2016. This is an example of instagram having a real benefit rather than simply an ego booster. The gallery saw my work on instagram and reached out to me. They have been really great to work with and hopefully I will make it down there one of these days to see their gallery in person!
