Gallery Show!

This 20″x16″ painting on panel is called “Roaring”. This is a potential show image for my exhibit in Astoria, Oregon. The show is called “Transitions” and will be at the McVarish Gallery from June 9th through July 12th!

The gallery is very new, I believe my show is the fourth show in the space. I am very excited to head back to Astoria!

Baker City, art show


 

Last night was the opening for my solo show at Crossroads Carnegie Art Center in Baker City, Oregon.

It is always fun to see a lot of your work hanging together in a show! I believe I brought approximately 53 paintings to this particular show. 

I gave a rambling art talk followed by a few questions. Then I hung around and talked to the kind hearted art patrons for a couple hours… now back to Idaho!

A walk through the pines


After setting up my art show in Baker City, Oregon I found myself with a free morning. I drove up to Phillips Reservoir and took an easy 4 mile hike. 

A beautiful area with open meadows sprinkled with sagebrush. Forests of ponderosa pine, tamarack and fir trees. Stunning snow capped peaks and a lovely lake to top it off! 

I rarely see bluebirds, they are beautiful elusive birds that love my kind of country. Today I saw dozens of bluebirds, an otter, eagles and hundreds of ground squirrels.

Western Shadows: New Show

Crossroads May17 posterI have a new solo show coming up the month of May in Baker City, Oregon. The exhibit will be at “Crossroads Carnegie Art Center”, coming pretty fast on the heels of my last show which is a little stressful.

I am looking forward to the road trip and a bit of adventure so I’ll have to put my paints aside and break out the jibber jabber (I only have so many words). Looking at this poster I’m also remembering I need new tires pretty soon.
