I recently finished these two 16″x16″ dramatic cloud paintings. They will be part of the collection of paintings headed to Bainbridge Island for a solo exhibit. The show is at BPA, I have never been there but am looking forward to it! I have been to Bainbridge Island a number of times, beautiful place across the sound from Seattle.
30″x24″ this painting is going to a solo show at the Lower Columbia College in Longview, Wa. There are 27 paintings going to this show!
This 18″x24″ acrylic painting was inspired by Lake Pend Oreille. A subject I repeatedly visit.
I mailed off another batch of paintings to this California gallery. Pretty fond of these, hope they find good homes down there!
I have some really large storage drawers in my studio. I have found the are not only great for storage but a great way to protect drying artwork.
Fun to hang some paintings up temporarily on the studio wall. Some of these were part of a commission and have now moved out.
I installed some rails to hang paintings on which will help keep the studio organized and more easily allow me to observe my recent works.
This is another 24″x24″ painting I very recently completed as part of a commission.
Bold lighting elements and soft moody atmospheric work is seemingly simple but is very challenging to paint with acrylic and open acrylic paint.
I am drawn to enigmatic imagery and though this subject is straight forward it still has a bit of mystery…. that’s what it’s all about for me.
Gathering up some paintings in my studio that were commissions. I painted four 24″x24″ paintings for a great family that has a house on Lake Pend Oreille. Painting these was a real pleasure knowing they would be hanging lakeside on this beautiful North Idaho lake.
I will be posting more images of the four paintings along with two additional paintings very soon!
Three atmospheric paintings recently completed. Experimenting with a combination of acrylic and oil paint. I am attaching a video sequence as well, the image loses something in translation.
Moonlight is mesmerizing, it’s not news that it has a romantic feel but there is something so hypnotic about a big moon casting shadows and lighting up the darkness with such interesting and subtle colors. I have done very few moon paintings but it is something I always mean to put time into.
This weekend I was working on some atmospheric cloudscapes, nothing unusual for me. I was also unpacking boxes in my new studio space, more on that at a later date. I found some small boards that I had readied for painting at least a year ago and packed away. So I decided to play around with some nocturnal imagery. Ultimately I want to do some really good sized paintings but for now it is nice to get some forward progress into the night.
