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).
I recently completed this 14″X11″ acrylic painting. I was very pleased with the feel of this particular piece. I have been on a vacation but I am very eager to get back to the paint!
I recently finished this 16″x16″ painting. Here it is on one of my work tables that is quickly becoming covered with paint as well!
This is an older painting, two years old. I had been painting desolated man made objects working out the beginning of a series. I had four other chair paintings they all sold aside from this one. “Wait” was actually my favorite of the bunch so now I am pleased to hang it up in the studio. Perhaps I will revisit the idea in the future.
This week I mailed off two paintings to a new collector in Hong Kong. Two of my favorite water paintings, funny to think they will be on a wall so far from Idaho.
I just finished painting these 5″x5″ paintings. They are inspired by late afternoon light hitting the forests around Lake Pend Oreille.
I plan on doing a larger painting based on these studies, hopefully I will be able to have that posted by next week.
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!
Another atmospheric painting inspired by Lake Pend Oreille. This particular piece is 16″x16″, a pretty nice size to work on.
Distant storms are Dramatic and inspiring to watch. This was an attempt at capturing an impressive downpour on a 16″x16″ board.
Another 14″x14″ waterscape painting of Lake Pend Oreille.
