Bringing it back home today with a new painting in the studio. Inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille in North Idaho. I always think of this as my home water. It has been for more than 6 years now.
A tribute to the season. I am so excited for more daylight and sunshine. A little sun on the lake and the day is better.
I am working on a little collection of these 16” square water paintings. I put gold leaf on the 2” cradled side rather than framing the pieces. Some of these should be at my June solo show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
Vernal Equinox has arrived. North Idaho has already had a real taste of spring. A bit more snow in the forecast but it is the last gasp of winter.
Inspiration from Lake Pend Oreille. We have had a lot of sunshine in the last couple weeks. So excited for more sunshine and daylight.
It really feels like the end of days still the sun is shining. My modest 401k has gone away even as the snow turns back to ground. Finance and health aside the stretching days are filled with light. Thankful this didn’t happen in the darkened depths of Fall.
We just had a huge windstorm. The winds knocked down trees and took out the power all over the region. Nature always shifting, nothing stays the same. Even now the daylight is stretching and the sun is returning to the north.
Just a little springtime fantasy painting.
The magic of spring when the grass is still green and growing. The days expanding and the outdoors beckon.
Now that there are just a few tiny patches of snow lingering in the shadows, my last winter scene. This is the smallest of the work I will be shipping to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.
This morning the sunrise was an epic display of color. I had been rousted from bed by my furry friends and when I walked into the living room the light was a stunning surprise. I am so excited to see our daylight increasing and the snow genuinely seems to be melting…
