Another new painting bound for my show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I varnished and framed these small paintings. The lower right piece is off to Colorado.
When the moon lights up the night it creates a magical otherworldly quality. The forest becomes such a mysterious and intriguing place. For all it’s beauty I can not recommend night hiking.
I live in North Idaho, conifer forests carpet the mountains. I tend to put my artistic focus into the big open spaces of Lake Pend Oreille. I do love the forest though and have wanted to capture the dappled light that blazes through the darkness.
Another one of my small paintings. I found these little frames in my studio. I don’t remember why I bought them but decided the time was right!
I took a road trip to Winthrop, Washington just about a month ago. It is an annual fishing trek with a couple great friends, different destinations.
Driving home on the back roads to Idaho gave me a chance to soak up the landscape. Explosive sunlight and massive clouds drifting across newly green fields. I love traveling through big desolate spaces especially if the roads are also empty. Nature always better sans people.
I am fickle about the tools and brushes I use. They generally have to get heavily broken in before I like them much. This new brush though has made It into constant rotation and I recommend it. It is a No. 12 Qualita FLAT By Creative Mark.
I was inspired to paint a few forest scenes. I live in a heavily timbered part of the planet. This first painting is reminiscent of the view from a small window in my studio. I like the wall of trees and occasionally spot turkeys, grouse and deer passing through on their way to the water.
