The High and Low

The High and Low 16”x16”

This is a TBT, which I don’t condone but participate in purely out of hypocrisy.

To me this is emotion in acrylic paint, a work I genuinely love. Painting for paintings sake with no expectation or destination.

Today I am turning off my computer, blow out the candle.

Under the Sun

Under the Sun is a 16″x20″ acrylic/open acrylic painting on cradled birch.

I love clouds, of course they are best when they don’t obscure all of the blue! This painting is the second one inspired by the transitions of season. Snow rapidly disappearing from the mountains, so fast it caused substantial flooding in North Idaho. The diminishing snow adds so much character to the faded mountains, particularly when the sky is filled with clouds and mist. It creates a kind of ghostly magical quality that is so subtle but so inspiring.
