One of the four paintings I dropped off at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, Ca! I had a solo show there back in a February so it was good to add some more pieces to their gallery.
This painting was sold through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming. I painted it in February of this year.

Some dynamic work that will be at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon!
Atmosphere and lighting are often components of my paintings that drive my work. Finding form yet maintaining a sense of mystery.
I have often come back to sunsets as a subject. Of course it is an undeniably beautiful transition but there is also a bit of sadness. Everything ends, we all know this and we are endlessly reminded. I guess that is part of the appeal of sunsets, the wedding of beauty and sorrow.
This painting is finished and ready for my show at the RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I am also having a limited edition of 30 hand numbered and signed giclee prints made of this piece (prints are 16”x12”).
Busy varnishing artwork for my upcoming show. So much work to sort through, so much exploration.
My second painting for a large scale landscape show at Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
I will be packing these up and taking them to the FedEx office this afternoon. It is always a challenge packing large paintings!
I have been painting a lot of sunsets lately. Trying to capture the color shifts and play of light and atmosphere is something I am obsessed with!
I have been pretty obsessed with the sunrises and sunsets on Lake Pend Oreille. Conveniently I have a tough time sleeping during normal hours so that makes it easier to witness the incredibly early dawn.
Not to complain but I’m always a little sad after the summer solstice. The first official day of summer is also when the daylight starts to dwindle. That’s life in a nutshell.
