Moving to Australia

10”x10” acrylic paintings

I am not moving to Australia but these two paintings are! Yesterday afternoon I shipped them off so they have a long voyage ahead.

I have only been to Australia once, many years ago. I went to Sydney which is where these works are going. It is such a beautiful city. I wouldn’t mind taking a trip to Australia now to escape the winter. One of these years I will have to get back!

Rolling on…

Morning Wave 21”x8” acrylic on panel

My small wave paintings continue! This is an aspect ratio that is interesting to work with. It is well suited for something as potentially horizontal as waves breaking.

My next step will be to start the actual commission. That painting is much larger, 60″x23″. Sort of a challenge dealing with a hefty oddly shaped panel.. I tend to flip paintings around and move them about the studio… trying to see it with fresh eyes. Some people keep a small mirror around to see it in reverse. That is something I used to do with digital paintings, flip them. Maybe I need a mirror…

Enjoy your weekend!

Taking another look…

Down the River 20”x16” acrylic painting

I revisited a painting from late 2018 that I wasn’t entirely satisfied with. I am gathering paintings for my February solo show making hard decisions. This particular piece was on the edge but now it will be attending the exhibit! The show is at the Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California.

Kuwait

Tranquility 14”x11” acrylic on wood panel

This is a painting I finished September 14th. Instagram helps me keep track of such trivia!

It was one of three paintings I sold to a nice woman from Kuwait. I have shipped paintings all over the planet but this was the slowest and most worrisome shipment. It arrived in Kuwait City very quickly but then it took about 6 weeks for her to receive it! It all worked out though and she has them hanging together on her wall.

Working in the studio

20”x16” paint on wood panel

It’s another Wednesday and I am so thankful to have a dedicated space to paint. Also the time to work on the art I really care about. The winter has arrived but I am excited about being hold up in my studio and giving it all I’ve got! Strangely upbeat today, must be a chemical imbalance.

Big Light

I am prepping a collection of paintings to send to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. I am thrilled to have gallery representation in Jackson Hole! A town I have always loved visiting.

Lately I have been spread thin sending out so much work and prepping for my solo show this February at Elliott Fouts Gallery. I am absolutely loving it, and so thankful!
