Solitude

Solitude 20″x16″ 2018

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!

Day Transitions 20”x16”

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.

Gallery Show!

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!
