Looking up at snow covered branches. I am endlessly dragging them off the driveway, hoping my timing isn’t wrong.
Two moody forest scenes. I prepared so many 12” boards that I keep painting images this size! It is a fun scale to work on as it allows for a little quicker experimentation. Ultimately I need to move back to larger panels for my 2020 exhibits.
I took a proper photo of this finished painting. This one is only 12″x12″, I definitely plan on doing larger works with this moody atmosphere.
I paint a dark picture. Seeking light I have known. The palette has shifted.
A dark and rainy morning as I add some layers of color to this piece. Painting with a crazy cold so I am a bit loopy. I’m not complaining.
Another moody storm piece. I love trying to capture that sense of epic power.
I picked up a bunch of new boards to paint on. Always excited when I have so many surfaces ready!
This painting is part of an ongoing series I keep adding to. The images are all big storms over water. They have a very heavy psychological feel. I am utterly obsessed with this collection and keep adding to it!
Another cloud painting inspired by the low winter sun of the north! Pictured in progress on my studio table.
Work in progress 12″x16″
A couple small water studies, each 8″x10″. I always seem to come back to these meditative pieces.
I have been experimenting with some gel medium in the paint for a little thicker texture. It definitely changes the behavior of the paint in interesting ways. If the ratio of paint to medium is too high the dry color becomes a bit unpredictable, which isn’t a great thing!
