I revisited this painting. It never felt “right” to me. Some additional work proved to be the right decision. Now I have finalized the painting, signed and varnished.
Pack River Flats (commission)
Wrapping up this commission. A painting of Lake Pend Oreille from a different vantage. I drove over to the owner’s property a number of times before starting a concept and ultimately this final painting. Always a pleasure to paint this like I love so much.
The beauty of the low sun and winter light. The magic moments are so brief, impossible to hold. Final studio capture of this piece.
Inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille in Idaho. This time of year the last sun blasts the mountains to the east. A true spectacle of color.
I finished painting this commission during the week. I had done a few 14”x11” paintings in advance just to experiment with color and motion before tackling such a large painting. over the weekend I will varnish this one and install hangers. Then package and ship!
Distant and Romantic Lands
This is another painting I will be shipping to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming. A new collection of pieces I am eager to share!
New work from another time. This seems like a concept for another series. Time is short and there is only so much that can be done.
I know summer is long gone but this title was stuck in my brain. Probably because I have listened to Cashmere by Led Zeppelin so many times in my life.
The magical quality of moonlight is undeniable. It has been a popular subject for centuries but I can not resist the gravitational pull.
I am doing a series of moonlight inspired works so more to come.
This 20″x16″ painting is a recently completed work. My obsession with atmosphere, light and grande expanses motivated this piece.
The entire collection of three together in the second photograph.
