We had a pretty loud lightning and hail storm on Lake Pend Oreille yesterday. A little bit of excitement as winter slowly gives up the ghost.
Beyond the Hills
This painting packed a lot of power on a little board. We get some amazing lightning shows in North Idaho.
Witness (one year)
This photo was taken nearly a year ago. I am constantly thinking about the passing of time and how I spend it. It is true you spend time like money but it cannot be replenished. The clock is ticking, can I make the most of this day? I continue to paint each day. It is how I pay my bills but it is also my passion in life. All we can do is follow our enthusiasms and appreciate the good time while we have it.
Roaring Light (SOLD)
I just sold this painting. Sometimes my own studio is the best gallery.
Nature, all things
Two short videos from this morning and evening. I also did some solid painting but it doesn’t compare.
One of my favorite recent works just sold. I was saving it for my August solo show but sales are important during these difficult days.
Lightning & Snow: the peanut butter & chocolate of nature. I took this painting outside for the lovely natural light.
Rare post featuring me with my painting.
Roaring Light (final)
I love dramatic weather. Capturing a sense of that power and feel is an exciting challenge. This one will be at my August solo show at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
Beyond the Hills
A little commission I finished yesterday morning. These days I am focusing on my upcoming exhibits but I am still taking a few commissions to keep things rolling.
We get some pretty dramatic storms in North Idaho. Lightning is always exciting if not a little terrifying. It has inspired imagery I have considered playing around with for a while… starting small with this one.
