Large Landscape

Polarity, 40”x30” acrylic

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.

Color and a Touch of Colour

Haunted Shore, 20”x16” acrylic

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.

Decisions

9”x12” and 8” diameter acrylic paintings

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.
