It’s another Wednesday and I am so thankful to have a dedicated space to paint. Also the time to work on the art I really care about. The winter has arrived but I am excited about being hold up in my studio and giving it all I’ve got! Strangely upbeat today, must be a chemical imbalance.
A colorful cloud painting on the studio counter with some friends! This one doesn’t have the apocalyptic vibe of yesterday’s post.
Another day in the studio, I am grateful.
Here is a link to some of my work currently at Radius Gallery:
I am busy prepping work for a solo show in Sacramento at the Elliott Fouts Gallery. My studio counter is filling up, still so much to do!
I deliver the work in early January, which is sounding soon here in November!
Looking around the chaos of my studio it is plain to see light inspires me. As we head into the darkest part of the year the sunlight is all the more dramatic and inspirational.
These two paintings were worked up together after a very early morning on the lake. Spending time in the studio looking at your work and shuffling it around is time well spent. Nothing physically to show for it but it is valuable just to reflect.
I continue painting some nocturnal imagery. I had painted one moon inspired landscape and decided that was enough. That night I saw the moon rise above the Cabinet Mountains and decided I could put some more paint to panel!
This is a TBT, which I don’t condone but participate in purely out of hypocrisy.
To me this is emotion in acrylic paint, a work I genuinely love. Painting for paintings sake with no expectation or destination.
Today I am turning off my computer, blow out the candle.
I am pretty obsessed with light and atmosphere. This painting is inspired by countless mornings on the water. I say countless but I still have not spent nearly enough mornings like that. Sometimes it’s worth getting up.
Two shoreline paintings I recently finished. I took them outside to get a picture in the lovely autumn light.
The title of this painting is everything.
Hard to believe it is already the middle of October. The snow on the mountains and falling leaves certainly aren’t subtle reminders. I have been working on small paintings, experimenting and exploring. Now time is getting away from me so I have to get serious about my next solo show. I will be delivering work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in early January which seems soon!
The days are getting shorter but they have been incredibly beautiful.
