This weekend I took the big road trip to pack up my Bainbridge Island solo show. On my return I took the ferry across to Edmonds, Wa and dropped this painting off at its new home. This is Ryan holding the painting, one of my very best friends. He talked me into putting my art online, I was resistant for years! He also told me about WordPress and I started my Instagram account shortly there after (@bsostrom) on his recommendation. Thanks Ryan!
This 20″x16″ painting is a recently completed work. My obsession with atmosphere, light and grande expanses motivated this piece.
The entire collection of three together in the second photograph.
Two little ocean paintings I recently finished. These were sold and will be shipped off to England in early April with some larger works.
Clean water on dirty plastic, sadly it’s usually the other way around.
As the surfaces I work on are developing a filthy patina it makes for an interesting contrast with the paintings. This particular painting is 12″x9″.
Two 12″x9″ paintings I completed this week. Trying to keep things minimal with intriguing mark making and beautiful atmospherics.
A simple little seascape that captures the light and energy well. This 12″x9″ painting is my most recent painting. I am planning on doing a number of fairly small works in the coming weeks.
I have been working on some smaller paintings as a little break. I just finished this 12″x9″ painting very early this morning.
This is one of those paintings that seemed to make itself. I carefully moved it from the easel to the table and was thankful.
It traveled from a North Idaho to the BPA on Bainbridge Island, part of the exhibit.
I just finished this little 10″x10″ painting. I will probably be taking this to the Bainbridge Island exhibit. Only two weeks until I leave so I have a lot of decisions to make and a lot of pieces to finalize!
A small painting with a lot of light! This one is 8″x8″.
I have a show on Bainbridge Island to install at the end of the month. I am working on a collection for that exhibit. To soon to say what will make the cut!
