McVarish Gallery

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!

Artist Reception

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!

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!!!
