Some new shimmering work. There was a time when I thought a 24”x18” board was big… now it just seems like a fun size to paint. I am putting together a large collection of pieces with these dimensions, some should be available at my solo show June 11th at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I find myself working on meditative paintings frequently. When I am fully immersed in painting it creates a very trance like state. Combining the process with imagery infused with mystery and movement, the feeling is compounded.
An experimental painting from last May. Something I intended to follow further. One of the benefits of looking through past work, a reminder of exploration yet to do.
Photographing some of my paintings this morning. Anything that isn’t painting feels like a distraction, but it is part of the gig.
Water can be a source of peace and tranquillity. I find when painting images like this I get lost in the work and it soothes my mind.
A little mood on this Monday morning.
A simple little water meditation.
Final image of this painting from a High Resolution scan. Minimalist approach to the shine of water.
New art added to my Ugallery collection!
Exploring water imagery with abstraction and expressive mark making. Like many of my paintings I want to make them larger.
