Inspiration from my backyard. This painting will be at my solo exhibit at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.
For the past eight years I have had two or three solo shows each year, all over the country. During the pandemic I decided to limit my big exhibitions to one a year. This year it is North Carolina. In 2022 I have a solo exhibit on the Oregon coast.
A painting from one year ago. This one was sold at my solo exhibit in Denver at Abend Gallery. I desperately wanted to attend the show but of course it was 2020 so it became an online and by appointment exhibit. Someday I will make it down there, it will probably take another solo show!
This painting seemed like the perfect post for Halloween. Part of a series of dark tree imagery I created this year. I intended to paint some huge versions but the pandemic, fires and general apocalyptic vibe of the year dulled my enthusiasm… at least for now.
