Starting a series of paintings focusing on the forest. I live in snow country so there will be some winter imagery, don’t be alarmed.
This is a pretty special piece. One of those paintings that felt like it held some kind of magic. I know when I feel that way I have to put it aside.
The other day we received 8″ of snow. It is always startling to wake up to such a dramatic shift in the world.
I abandoned what I was working on in the studio and did a couple moody snow scenes. Fun capturing the vibe right outside my window.
I am painting a group of 5″x5″ paintings for an upcoming exhibit with Abend Gallery. In the future I want to work on a mix of tiny and large paintings. Small works are such a great way to experiment and play with color schemes etc.
This one did not make my top 9 of 2019 but it was one of my favorites of the year! Available at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
Three small acrylic paintings, each 5″x7″. I am working on small pieces in preparation for larger works. The middle painting just sold this morning.
This is the third painting in this little series. The painting is my favorite of the group because I am a fan of interesting mark making and simplicity. Creating something seemingly minimal and effortless is often incredibly difficult. This is where all of my years of painting work in my favor.
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.
Winter sun is a precious thing. This is one of three little winter light studies I am working on.
In honor of my sister’s birthday. Happy Birthday Julie!
