This was part of an ethereal collection of sky paintings I recently finished. Minimal sky paintings freed from the constraints of land.
A proper photo of this painting. I am building a body of work for two major exhibits this year.
Light and atmospherics are always part of my painting. This one is especially powerful in person.
Light, color and atmosphere are some of the elements I am obsessed with. So a small sunset painting before I really dig into the winter and forest imagery I am inspired to do.
A tranquil post on this Friday after Halloween.
A painting from December that I sold during my February solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. We returned from that trip in a night blizzard, white knuckles but it worked out!
I was going to take the day off. I find myself behind and needing to get more work framed and shipped out. Still with the sub freezing temperatures not a bad way to spend the day. I just framed this one and will be shipping it to California tomorrow!
The final painting for my upcoming solo show is shipping out today.
The show opens February 2nd at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, Ca. It will run the month February.
A couple small water studies, each 8″x10″. I always seem to come back to these meditative pieces.
I have been experimenting with some gel medium in the paint for a little thicker texture. It definitely changes the behavior of the paint in interesting ways. If the ratio of paint to medium is too high the dry color becomes a bit unpredictable, which isn’t a great thing!
