Studio Experiments

Ripples and Rings, 8”x10” acrylic

The rain and sun of spring are a source of inspiration. I decided to break down the imagery into something of an abstracted pattern. The result is a bit hypnotic and perhaps meditative.

The paint is often the subject of my work as much as any imagery.

Headed back to Pendleton, Oregon to take down the “shadows of the west” show. Such a long build up for a month long exhibition! I really enjoyed the experience and the opportunity, it just went by fast like all good things do. Most of these paintings will remain in crates until the next show in late July.

Driving across the more empty portions of the state fills me with nostalgia. Seeing boats and fishermen makes me think of a lot of fun adventures gone.

It was incredibly beautiful with distant rain squalls and amazing cloud formations… I still love a good road trip!!!
