I often hear about Holiday depression. This year I seem to be feeling it. A terrible dread and sense of hopelessness. Perhaps it is a chemical thing. Maybe something to do with the sun failing to rise above the hill. I posted something regrettable last night on WordPress, I am sorry for that. I hope everyone is doing well this Holiday Season.
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!
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!
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!
