We get some pretty dramatic storms in North Idaho. Lightning is always exciting if not a little terrifying. It has inspired imagery I have considered playing around with for a while… starting small with this one.
This is a painting from this February. One of those pieces that drew my eyes every time I walked into the studio. I sold the painting through Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson Hole. It now resides in California.
I have always loved watching clouds, in that way I’m not alone.
Another moody storm piece. I love trying to capture that sense of epic power.
I picked up a bunch of new boards to paint on. Always excited when I have so many surfaces ready!
I have been working steadily on some powerful storm imagery. This particular piece is one of my favorites.
I did not have specific plans for these, just driven to create them. Horizon Gallery in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, wanted them. They ended up selling this one before I could get it varnished. So Messenger, will be shipping directly to California. The other three will heading to Wyoming. I will post images of them all when they leave North Idaho.
This painting is part of an ongoing series I keep adding to. The images are all big storms over water. They have a very heavy psychological feel. I am utterly obsessed with this collection and keep adding to it!
I am continuing my recycling of boards. Half a dozen paintings I liked but not enough to keep have been stripped off to become something new!
I am really pretty addicted to apocalyptic cloud formations. The beauty and power are fascinating. This one is small but mighty!
This moody painting was one of my favorites last winter. It now resides in San Francisco.
This painting has shipped off to it’s new home in Texas! It is a 20″x16″ painting that I just picked up from my solo show in Pendleton, Oregon.
This painting was part of a storm series I had started working on over the summer. Inspired by some rather overwhelming early summer storms that were shockingly beautiful and probably contributed to our summer forest fires.
