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.
This painting packed a lot of power on a little board. We get some amazing lightning shows in North Idaho.
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.
I just sold this painting. Sometimes my own studio is the best gallery.
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.
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.
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.
