I have been working hard on a large commission since returning from my solo show in Astoria. I believe I will have it wrapped up this weekend! I am then framing it and shipping it off to wine country in California. I will post a finished photo before I package it up.
Another painting from the show I am having in Astoria, Oregon at the McVarish Gallery. The exhibition runs until July 12th so if you are in the area, give it a look!
This is a very recent open acrylic painting. The edges of day and night are always inspiring and contemplative. The mood can be tranquil but there is also the reminder of our time passing.
This painting is part of my “Transitions” exhibit opening tonight at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I know it’s silly but what the heck! These acrylic paintings now reside in Hong Kong, I have sent a surprising amount of work to different folks there… I should be getting better at geography. My art has seen much more of the world than I have… though I have done some traveling!
I am framing work for an upcoming exhibit. Part of the process is editing your work and trying to select the most powerful pieces. I took this photo of three of my small cloudscapes… only two will go. I have my opinions but would love to hear from you! Which two paintings do you like the best?
This weekend I didn’t get enough work done. I did manage to varnish and frame this recent painting. I am still scrambling to get work ready for my solo show at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. That opens June 9th and last into mid July.
This is a 16″x20″ acrylic painting. As summer approaches I wanted to capture snow disappearing from the mountains… “between the snowman and the rain”. I have painted two northwest alpine scenes along these lines. They both have an ethereal ghostly presence that I really enjoy. I will post the other painting soon.
This is a detail from “Snoqualmie”.
This is a 14″x11″ painting. I love to play around with the shifting forms of clouds and light. The behavior of the paint and the way it is manipulated is the star of the show here!
Two of my 14″x11″ paintings featuring pink clouds. I am varnishing and framing these two works for the upcoming art exhibit in Astoria, Oregon.
