Christmas is rapidly closing in. I have all of my presents wrapped so I snuck over to the studio to do some framing. I have a lot of this sort of work to do at the beginning of 2019… I will split my time with painting. I get fidgety knowing I will be out of the studio a lot in the coming week!
I just completed this nocturnal painting. I have a growing collection of moon related art, most will be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento in January!
This painting is a glow with light. It has a really great feel that doesn’t entirely come across with the photographs I have taken. It will be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery for my next solo show. February 2nd-28th, 2019!
I continue painting some nocturnal imagery. I had painted one moon inspired landscape and decided that was enough. That night I saw the moon rise above the Cabinet Mountains and decided I could put some more paint to panel!
The moon has been pretty incredible this week on Lake Pend Oreille. I decided to do a little series, this is the second one!
I know summer is long gone but this title was stuck in my brain. Probably because I have listened to Cashmere by Led Zeppelin so many times in my life.
The magical quality of moonlight is undeniable. It has been a popular subject for centuries but I can not resist the gravitational pull.
I am doing a series of moonlight inspired works so more to come.
A couple of small nocturnal paintings I have recently finished. This paintings are on 8″x10″ panels. I have worked up a small collection of four that I will post soon! I plan on doing some larger paintings with this late night vibe.
The moon and night sky are always so captivating and hypnotic to me. I noticed the moon waxing yesterday evening. I am hoping this weekend, when it is full, more of the smoke in the air will have cleared. I’m already feeling low with summer rapidly winding down, more to look forward to I know.
In the meantime I am painting a series of nocturnal images. This one is 10″x8″… more to come!
Moonlight is mesmerizing, it’s not news that it has a romantic feel but there is something so hypnotic about a big moon casting shadows and lighting up the darkness with such interesting and subtle colors. I have done very few moon paintings but it is something I always mean to put time into.
This weekend I was working on some atmospheric cloudscapes, nothing unusual for me. I was also unpacking boxes in my new studio space, more on that at a later date. I found some small boards that I had readied for painting at least a year ago and packed away. So I decided to play around with some nocturnal imagery. Ultimately I want to do some really good sized paintings but for now it is nice to get some forward progress into the night.
