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.
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.
I have been obsessed with the sky and water of Lake Pend Oreille for a while now. Obsessed enough to pull up roots and relocate last summer. This is part of an ongoing series I am developing trying to capture the scale and weight of a stormy atmosphere.
