This is the latest selection of paintings making their way to the Elliot Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. This collection is made up of four 12”x9” paintings and one 16”x20” painting. All acrylic/open acrylic paint on cradled birch wood.
I have been sending work regularly to this California gallery and am happy now to have a solo show scheduled at the space for February 2019! I pushed off the date of the show so that I could add to my collection of work after my two remaining solo exhibitions this summer in Oregon (eastern and western).
It will be nice to have a California gallery display my work in the midst of another brooding NW winter. I am not sure if I will fly out for the opening but I plan on flying down with a large shipment of paintings as an early winter reprieve!
A couple paintings I have recently finished. I was commissioned to do three atmospheric water/sky paintings that are 7″x9″. It is a custom size so I had to cut a number of panels and decided to paint even more work that size! One of these was for the commission the painting beneath the text was just for me.
This collection of recent paintings are on their way to England. Now my art travels a lot more than I do!
Testing out a frame on this 9″x7″. Frames can really give a painting a beautifully finished look. I have been working on panels recently and these are difficult to hang without a frame. So I have purchased a couple of frames to test them out. I typically don’t spend extra money on frames so trying to decide how to move forward with these!
Lake Pend Oreille has been a source of inspiration for a number of years. This is a fairly typical view when the weather is feeling gloomy.
A burning sunset painting, this one is modest in size at 10″x8″.
This 24″x18″ painting is currently at the BPA on Bainbridge Island. Forgive the black bars at the top and bottom!
I put a floating frame on this 18″x24″ painting. I am hoping to have eight paintings of this size as part of my show opening March 2nd on Bainbridge Island. I still have a lot to do!
