I recently finished these two 16″x16″ dramatic cloud paintings. They will be part of the collection of paintings headed to Bainbridge Island for a solo exhibit. The show is at BPA, I have never been there but am looking forward to it! I have been to Bainbridge Island a number of times, beautiful place across the sound from Seattle.
This 16″x16″ painting was part of the 27 painting collection I delivered yesterday. The solo show is in Longview, Wa at the Lower Columbia College. The exhibit will run from February 14th through March 14th.
This 24”x 18” painting has shipped off to a collector in San Francisco, CA. I was saving it for one of my two looming show deadlines but a fella has to make some money when he can!
This painting really has a beautiful apocalyptic vibe which was fun in the studio, plus we find ourselves at 2 minutes to midnight. Hopefully, the purchaser will enjoy this piece in the remaining two minutes!
This is a 24″x30″ painting I recently got back from a local show. I regretted not getting a proper photograph of it before the show but now I have one! This one is bound for A solo show on Bainbridge Island in a month!
This 24″x18″ painting has a loose quality I really like. I have chosen it to promote my upcoming show on Bainbridge Island. Currently I am completing work for a different show in Longview but I am planning for both!
This 16″x16″ acrylic painting is fresh from yesterdays easel. I took a break from the work required for the two upcoming solo shows and just enjoyed the process of creating… it is after all everything.
This is a painting I have entered into the “large formats” contest on minted. It is 24″x30″, if you want to help me out give it a vote with the attached link!
I am excited to be mailing off more work to Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. I have been sending work there for more than a year now and it is nice to have another venue for my paintings.
I am doing a final coat of varnish on these paintings before I ship them to California. I have struggled over the years with the best way to seal my acrylic paintings. Acrylic tends to stick to acrylic so if you do not varnish the work you will end up with a mess at some point! I am currently using Liquitex professional high gloss varnish. So far I am very pleased as it dries quickly and creates a really nice protective layer!
This 24″x30″ painting is a little glimpse of summer in the middle of our winter.
