The weather is cooling and I’m already pining for summer, time rushes past. This little 10″x8″ painting is an ode to summer, painted on a wooden panel.
This is one of three storm paintings I have recently finished. This particular one is now framed and ready for the Pendleton, Oregon exhibit!
I am mailing off these two paintings today. They are going to an Instagram friend in Southern California!
I just sold this painting at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. So far about 1/3 of my work has sold from the show. It is a good feeling to sell your art and it helps keep the lights. It does mean I will need more new work for my August show in Pendleton, Oregon!
This painting is part of my “Transitions” show currently on exhibit at McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
The atmosphere of this particular painting is really delicate. The shoreline a haunted edge barely existing along the expansive water. I am always striving to capture the sense of beauty I see with subtle mark making and simple gestures. It is such a difficult thing to do but when it works it feels like magic!
My solo show opened last night at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I was excited to have my parents attend one of my shows, along with my Aunt and Uncle! A lot of great people showed up and made the evening fun and kept me talking. Here is a collection of photos from the evening.
I have dropped off my newest collection of work at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. This painting is part of the collection and very appropriate for this misty coastal day!
I don’t know if it matters when deadlines are. For me I seem compelled to work right to the edge no matter if necessary or not. Next weekend is the opening of my show in Astoria, Oregon. The show is called “Transitions” at the McVarish Gallery. So I suppose it is appropriate that one of the final paintings for the show shares part of the show title.
This 20″x16″ painting on panel is called “Roaring”. This is a potential show image for my exhibit in Astoria, Oregon. The show is called “Transitions” and will be at the McVarish Gallery from June 9th through July 12th!
The gallery is very new, I believe my show is the fourth show in the space. I am very excited to head back to Astoria!
I have been painting a lot of ocean paintings of late! This is a 20″x16″ acrylic painting on panel.
