My two finished cow portraits. Today I am shipping them to the little pink house gallery for a Fall show. The LPHG is a small gallery in North Idaho. I usually send them paintings a couple times per year. This LPHG and Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana are the closest galleries I work with.
I have a solo exhibit at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, Ca. The show takes place February 2nd through February 28th.
I have around 23 finished paintings that I have chosen for the show. Now I need to get the work there! I had considered flying down with a couple giant travel cases but decided it would be more cost effective to ship the paintings over a couple weeks time. So this week I will be packing and shipping like a maniac!
If anyone is in the greater Sacramento area I hope you will check out the show! There is a reception February 9th!
Today I will be varnishing and photographing much of my work. As eager as I am to paint I have a looming deadline for my show solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. The show is the month of February so I need to get my work photographed, varnished, framed, packaged and shipped very soon! Deadlines keep me running!
This is a portion of my work currently on display at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. The show will be up for just two more weeks, then prepping for a show in Pendleton, Oregon. I am pretty proud of this particular exhibit. A great deal of work goes into each art show so it is a little sad when they end! I am also excited to announce that I will be having another solo show at the McVarish Gallery summer of 2019!
Last night was the artist reception for my show “The Beauty of Nothing”. It is a solo show at Lewis-Clark State college running through March 18th.
It was fun seeing so many of my paintings sharing the walls. I have 80 paintings on display. The gallery is gigantic so I was hoping I had enough work, luckily it seemed to be just right. The space is a historic brick building in downtown Lewiston Washington.
I met a lot of great people at the opening. It was really fun meeting one of my Instagram friends, Aaron Johnson. He is a talented landscape painter living in the area. He also teaches art classes at Lewis-Clark state college. His paintings document the beauty of the Palouse, a unique and beautiful area. I went to college at Washington State University which is in the heart of this Palouse country.
I will be back to close out the show and also teach a workshop on March 18th!
Six large paintings that are part of the collection I packed off to the Lewis-Clark State College. These are each 24″x24″.
Now that the chaos of show prep is behind me I am scaling back the size of my works again. More experimentations!
My show is opening at Lewis-Clark State College! This one is fairly long, running until March 18th. There is an artist reception February 3rd and I will be teaching a class on March 18t.
This is a larger painting than I have been doing recently, it is 36″x36″. I enjoy large works but in a tight space it is difficult to deal with. I will come back to more large pieces when I have a better studio situation!
This one is being packed up for an art show I am having down in Lewiston Idaho at Lewis-Clark State College.
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!!!
