I have always loved watching clouds, in that way I’m not alone.
This was a little series I painted just about a year ago. These paintings were sold to three different buyers. I had imagined them staying together but it wasn’t meant to be!
This morning the sunrise was an epic display of color. I had been rousted from bed by my furry friends and when I walked into the living room the light was a stunning surprise. I am so excited to see our daylight increasing and the snow genuinely seems to be melting…
I dug out an older board with some texture. Stripped off the painting and made this one. It’s the classic wash rinse and repeat.
I few small paintings from a busy week. As much as I enjoy working on large paintings it is fun to mix it up!
I sold these two paintings. One is bound for Germany, the other for California!
They were challenging to paint but also rewarding. One was a commission the other just for fun.
I am pretty excited about the atmosphere in this painting. It was almost finished last week but I came in with a little more shadow and contrast. It was just the thing.
This is a painting I did in November. Part of an ongoing series.
I did not include this piece in my Sacramento show or send it off to any of the galleries I work with. Really unusual piece but I’m really excited about it. It feels like the beginning of something even if it looks more like the end.
This is the painting I had been building to with my 10″ studies of the Kootenai Valley. There is a mighty and powerful river there but I was entranced with the small trickling streams and ditches. Cold but amazing place. I wanted to stay until dark but when we nearly got the car stuck leaving seemed like a pretty good idea!
I had s little commission last week of the northern lights. I decided to do a second painting which I finished over the weekend!
Also I saw a moose Saturday!
