Studio light alone shines on this moonscape commission. Last look at this one, it was packed up and shipped to its new home.
A small painting I did as a commission. I am going to make some large moon related paintings so this was a nice warmup.
When the moon comes out in the winter it seems especially magic. The light is so limited in January.
Finalizing some paintings for Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. The frames are ordered but they all need to be signed and varnished this weekend.
Remembering to be Grateful
It was too early to be awake.
I reached for the phone, 3:00 AM. The terrible dead-zone of night.
Something I must remember. Was it important or maybe a secret? Perhaps just a bill I had forgotten to pay. It’ll come to me if I can just get back to sleep, I’m sure it will.
It is a stream darkly meandering.
Negativity eroding the shore.
Stay dry, the current is strong.
I often hear about Holiday depression. This year I seem to be feeling it. A terrible dread and sense of hopelessness. Perhaps it is a chemical thing. Maybe something to do with the sun failing to rise above the hill. I posted something regrettable last night on WordPress, I am sorry for that. I hope everyone is doing well this Holiday Season.
I just completed this nocturnal painting. I have a growing collection of moon related art, most will be headed to the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento in January!
I know summer is long gone but this title was stuck in my brain. Probably because I have listened to Cashmere by Led Zeppelin so many times in my life.
The magical quality of moonlight is undeniable. It has been a popular subject for centuries but I can not resist the gravitational pull.
I am doing a series of moonlight inspired works so more to come.
A couple of small nocturnal paintings I have recently finished. This paintings are on 8″x10″ panels. I have worked up a small collection of four that I will post soon! I plan on doing some larger paintings with this late night vibe.
I have been painting slightly larger fire paintings. This one is 14″x11″ so not very large but it gives me more room to play with the imagery.
I wanted to paint fire with wind blasting away at it, causing it to rage all the more. I really like the result but it does make me think of dragons.
The moon and night sky are always so captivating and hypnotic to me. I noticed the moon waxing yesterday evening. I am hoping this weekend, when it is full, more of the smoke in the air will have cleared. I’m already feeling low with summer rapidly winding down, more to look forward to I know.
In the meantime I am painting a series of nocturnal images. This one is 10″x8″… more to come!
