Where has the summer gone? I am working on pieces for an October show and already dreading summers departure. Dig deep, that’s all there is to do.
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.
A painting sold this this spring through Robert Lange Studios. The studio/gallery represents some really talented artists and is located in Charleston, South Carolina.
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”).
One of three small paintings I am packing up to mail to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. The gallery has a nice display of my work and consistently sells pieces.
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.
I have been pretty obsessed with the sunrises and sunsets on Lake Pend Oreille. Conveniently I have a tough time sleeping during normal hours so that makes it easier to witness the incredibly early dawn.
Not to complain but I’m always a little sad after the summer solstice. The first official day of summer is also when the daylight starts to dwindle. That’s life in a nutshell.
As my next show gets closer I am making decisions about which pieces I will take. I am varnishing older work and still painting new pieces. I want the exhibit to be a strong collection that all belongs together but also with visual variety. It is tough to know sometimes exactly how much work is needed. Like so many things in life it is about making good decisions.
