This painting is one of 24 works bound for RiverSea Gallery!
Prepping so many paintings for my upcoming show! I have finalized 24 works now I am wrapping them all for the road trip to RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon!
Another large landscape on the easel. I am working on two paintings this size for a show at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
I have really enjoyed working on such a large cradled board. It seems every time I paint something with some scale I want to do more! As I am finalizing work for my solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon I am also finalizing paintings for a few galleries sprinkled around the country. It seems I am always scrambling.
As my next show gets closer I am making decisions about which pieces I will take. I am varnishing older work and still painting new pieces. I want the exhibit to be a strong collection that all belongs together but also with visual variety. It is tough to know sometimes exactly how much work is needed. Like so many things in life it is about making good decisions.
This painting will be at my upcoming solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The show dates are July 13 through August 6, 2019.
I have been in the gallery many times over the past 15 years or so. I am excited to finally have my work displayed with RiverSea Gallery. It’ll also be fun to get back to the Oregon Coast!
I am fickle about the tools and brushes I use. They generally have to get heavily broken in before I like them much. This new brush though has made It into constant rotation and I recommend it. It is a No. 12 Qualita FLAT By Creative Mark.
Small paintings are a great way to play with compositions and color schemes. I am also excited to use these little frames!
Another small painting! The brush partly for scale, mostly for painting.
I am not going back to alaska anytime soon, sadly. This painting is a commission I am finalizing, inspired by Alaska. I would love to get back up there again!
I bought some 8″ round wooden boards to paint on. These have a back cradled frame and are really nice. Thought it would be fun to do some portraits!
I am also using some art supplies given to me by Jerry’s Artarama. They sent me a lot of fun materials to play with.
