First and Last

First and Last – 30”x24”, acrylic

This is a painting I am really fond of. In the scramble to make a living I rarely consider keeping my paintings, I was really tempted with this one! Instead I shipped it to Asheville, North Carolina! It is now available at Momentum Gallery in that lovely artistic community.

In the studio!

Beneath the Shine I

Beneath the Shine – 16”x16”, acrylic

I am working on a new series of water paintings. These are painted on a deep cradled board. I am finishing the edges with gold leaf rather than simply framing them. Some of these paintings will be at my solo show “Dreams Between Darkness”, June 11th at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.

Drifting Above

Drifting Above – 24”x30”, acrylic

Another strangely optimistic painting in the studio. I have been obsessively listening to news podcasts and watching just about every other news source on television. It always feels like the end of days and just seems to get worst. I don’t have much faith in the human animal… but here is a bit of visual hope.
