I have always been a fool for that last glimmer of light. Beauty and melancholy side by side, both heartbreakers.
I am painting some 12″x9″ loose sunset imagery. Really enjoying the light and atmosphere! I will be creating some larger pieces in this vein soon.
I have some large square panels I am playing with in my studio!
A photograph of me holding my painting “winter light”. Yesterday the sky was a bright grey, the ground white, and I was standing in a giant light box!
This painting and the final collection will be heading to California today. Ready for my solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California!
Low clouds and limited distance create a feeling of infinity. A sense of the unknown that I really enjoy. This time of year it is a prelude to the coming snows of winter.
Watching snow fall on a stormy lake is one of my favorite things about winter… certainly better than shoveling snow!
This time of year light does seem like something either remembered or glimpsed shining on a distant mountain. Light is the star of the show in this painting.
I am going to be putting coats of varnish on this piece today, then time to frame!
This painting is a glow with light. It has a really great feel that doesn’t entirely come across with the photographs I have taken. It will be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery for my next solo show. February 2nd-28th, 2019!
I am pretty obsessed with light and atmosphere. This painting is inspired by countless mornings on the water. I say countless but I still have not spent nearly enough mornings like that. Sometimes it’s worth getting up.
A small painting with a lot of light! This one is 8″x8″.
I have a show on Bainbridge Island to install at the end of the month. I am working on a collection for that exhibit. To soon to say what will make the cut!
I seem to be painting a lot of clouds these days. Giant powerful and full of mood they have always fascinated me so I am simply following my interests. This particular painting is 16″x16″ acrylic / open acrylic painting on cradled board.
As a painter I am striving to paint work that feels unique and new with a fresh vibrant use of color and mark making. The goal is a bit like shooting at the moon, I realize it is impossible but it doesn’t stop me. This particular painting is simple but encapsulates a lot of what I am striving for.
