I revisited a painting from late 2018 that I wasn’t entirely satisfied with. I am gathering paintings for my February solo show making hard decisions. This particular piece was on the edge but now it will be attending the exhibit! The show is at the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California.
It struck me when I walked into my studio this morning that my current painting feels very much like a ghost. I have it on my table easel and it seems to hover on the table.
This painting is almost a study in subtlety. The color and values easing into one another. This kind of painting seems difficult to capture digitally but for now here is an iPhone version.
The app said these were my top 9 of 2018, who am I to argue? Thank you all for your support and positivity in 2018, happy Holidays and here is to a great New Year!
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.
Another new painting in the studio. This one is bound for Elliott Fouts Gallery, that hour glass is draining quickly! I need to deliver these paintings in early January.
Again I find myself focusing on filtered sun and a dramatic sky with this painting. I have some exciting plans that are just a bit of a departure from my typical work… stay tuned!
I also have some paintings available at a super cool gallery in Missoula. Check out the link!
I framed and shipped this painting to a new home. These days I have abandoned the notion of hanging onto art no matter how much I like it.
The people who purchased this painting loved it so much that they first purchased it as a print from http://www.minted.com and then decided they had to own the original! It is a great feeling sending work somewhere it will be cherished.
As winter’s dark slips into our daily lives I am feeling inspired by the changing atmosphere. The sun staying low creating dramatic light and shadow. I am also a fool for giant clouds crawling across the land. It seems I like my landscapes moody.
The moon has been pretty incredible this week on Lake Pend Oreille. I decided to do a little series, this is the second one!
I had this deep cradled board in my studio for years and never used it. I found it recently when I was trying, once again, to clean the studio. It was really fun to work on such a vertical piece! The dimensions are 12″x24″.
This is a small collection of 10″x8″ paintings. I am experimenting with more aggressive mark making trying to boldly capture the morning light.
I am currently working on smaller paintings. After so many shows and deadlines this year I just want to paint and experiment and see where it goes!
