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.




Pack up the show


Headed back to Pendleton, Oregon to take down the “shadows of the west” show. Such a long build up for a month long exhibition! I really enjoyed the experience and the opportunity, it just went by fast like all good things do. Most of these paintings will remain in crates until the next show in late July.

Driving across the more empty portions of the state fills me with nostalgia. Seeing boats and fishermen makes me think of a lot of fun adventures gone.

It was incredibly beautiful with distant rain squalls and amazing cloud formations… I still love a good road trip!!!
