Though this painting was sold, prints can still be purchased at minted.com! I have many paintings available and more from the latest challenge coming soon!
Another new painting bound for my show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I live in North Idaho, conifer forests carpet the mountains. I tend to put my artistic focus into the big open spaces of Lake Pend Oreille. I do love the forest though and have wanted to capture the dappled light that blazes through the darkness.
I took a road trip to Winthrop, Washington just about a month ago. It is an annual fishing trek with a couple great friends, different destinations.
Driving home on the back roads to Idaho gave me a chance to soak up the landscape. Explosive sunlight and massive clouds drifting across newly green fields. I love traveling through big desolate spaces especially if the roads are also empty. Nature always better sans people.
I finally captured a proper photo of this painting. I am starting the process of sorting through my work in preparation for my next solo exhibit. The show opens July 13th at McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
It is almost June now so I am really on deadline for the July show. Yesterday I shipped off the last of my commissions. I still need to get work to a couple galleries in the next month besides my personal show so I am going to be painting constantly! Honestly I am not complaining, I am thrilled! Doing what I truly love after 25 years working on digital art, I am so fortunate. On a long weekend dedicated to the memory of soldiers that sacrificed everything, my life is so ridiculously easy.
I am painting some small moody seascapes in preparation for some much larger pieces. This is the first one I came up with.
Small paintings are a great way to play with compositions and color schemes. I am also excited to use these little frames!
The magic of spring when the grass is still green and growing. The days expanding and the outdoors beckon.
I finished these two small sunset paintings. I have a number of small frames and am excited to fill them! These will probably be headed to my solo show in Astoria, Oregon in July.
Another small painting! The brush partly for scale, mostly for painting.
