This photo was taken 5 weeks ago, much warmer days. Now I am wearing layers and a stocking cap in the studio. Acrylic paint dries much more slowly with these temperatures which is a benefit of the season!
I have been painting a lot of forest scenes recently. It occurred to me that this is a pattern I have followed for a few years in the fall. The low sun this time of year is beautiful and haunting. It drives home the temporary quality of our existence.
A scene from my studio with a new painting on the easel. I always loved this Damien Jurado song as well…
Another autumnal painting inspired by North Idaho. The leaves have pretty much all fallen now. I was meaning to do more fall imagery, maybe I will do some larger ones as the seasons change.
I am spending a lot of time framing and packing up art this weekend. It is not my favorite part of the job but it means work is selling which helps keep the lights on!
These two paintings are headed to Georgia!
Here is a link to Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana. Some of my work can be purchased with the link.
I am busy prepping work for a solo show in Sacramento at the Elliott Fouts Gallery. My studio counter is filling up, still so much to do!
I deliver the work in early January, which is sounding soon here in November!
Here are some paintings on the counter this morning in my studio. I will packaging two of them up to mail out tomorrow! One is bound for Australia and one for Wisconsin.
10″x10″ acrylicpainting. This will officially do it for small works for the near future. Time is feeling very short until the next show, I am doing a bunch of 16″x16″ paintings and working up from there. I need a time machine!
