A painting from December that has since sold. I plan to revisit this idea in a much larger format.
This morning I captured some high resolution studio shots of some recent paintings. This is one of my favorite recent pieces.
Working on some new water pieces. I started with a tiny study to sort out the color scheme.
Yesterday I heard this painting sold through RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon! This piece is one of my favorites, a marriage of mystery and menace. The painting now lives in Portland, Oregon.
I am painting a series of forest images featuring brooding skies. The low winter sun lighting up the trees in such a dark winter world is staggering.

Simplification and abstraction, concepts I play with to varying degrees in my work. This little painting is all about the feel of light.
I started this painting just about a year ago. I decided it was time to finish it or prep the surface for a new painting. I ended up adding some wave detail and strengthening the contrast.
I really like the color scheme and moody vibes of this painting. As I prepare a lot of giant boards I am going to be going back and forth between small paintings and huge panels. Ultimately I want to create more large scale epic works. The large pieces are much more expensive to make and end up with a large price tag so tougher to sell. Ultimately they are more satisfying and I aim to please myself.
