Final photograph of another recent painting. I have painted a few along this theme, more to come.
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.
Moving forward with a little bit of rain.
The beginning of a new series of paintings. Having spent my life in the Northwest, I have seen a lot of rain.
A small study in the studio today. Our snow has turned back to rain and watching it on the water is always a meditative experience.
We are starting to see more rain and the cooling signs of Fall. Inspiration for this piece headed to my October show on Vashon Island.
This painting sold over the weekend at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. We also had some rainfall in North Idaho Saturday which I am thankful for! Wildfire season can be terribly Smokey so the occasional rain in the heat of August are a blessing.
Work inspired by the grey skies and endlessly shifting light of Lake Pend Oreille. Even though it was hard to let go of the sunshine of summer nature always brings the beauty.
This is an Acrylic painting 10″x10″ in size.
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!!!
After wrapping up this series of skull paintings, I wanted to shift gears. I decided to paint another lonesome cloud image. This is a “work in progress”, though it is nearly complete. There are six more paintings I hope to create before late March… We shall see how it goes…
