Once again you made me your fool. All those warm days and late nights the sun barely resting. I tried so hard to keep you by my side.
Now you are off to some southern land. I laugh as you go but I will never forgive you. I prize my solitude and I will cling to the darkness. Maybe I will pine over an old photo of you this winter. In April a sparrow might spark a faint memory.
This painting sold over the weekend at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. We also had some rainfall in North Idaho Saturday which I am thankful for! Wildfire season can be terribly Smokey so the occasional rain in the heat of August are a blessing.
We get some pretty dramatic storms in North Idaho. Lightning is always exciting if not a little terrifying. It has inspired imagery I have considered playing around with for a while… starting small with this one.
This is one of the paintings I sold opening night at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The exhibit features 24 of my paintings in a wide variety of sizes. The exhibit is called “Apocalyptic Beauty” it runs through August 6th!
This painting is finished and ready for my show at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I am also having a limited edition of 30 hand numbered and signed giclee prints made of this piece (prints are 16”x12”).
Final capture of one of the many paintings that will be on display at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The show dates are July 13 through August 6, 2019. In related news I am finally having Giclee Prints made of a select few pieces, including this one!
Another large landscape on the easel. I am working on two paintings this size for a show at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
I have really enjoyed working on such a large cradled board. It seems every time I paint something with some scale I want to do more! As I am finalizing work for my solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon I am also finalizing paintings for a few galleries sprinkled around the country. It seems I am always scrambling.
