Nature and art are both free of sentimentality, somehow I am not.
I am at the tail end of a much needed vacation but here is a little apocalyptic memory from the studio!
Prepping so many paintings for my upcoming show! I have finalized 24 works now I am wrapping them all for the road trip to RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon!
I am fickle about the tools and brushes I use. They generally have to get heavily broken in before I like them much. This new brush though has made It into constant rotation and I recommend it. It is a No. 12 Qualita FLAT By Creative Mark.
I am not going back to alaska anytime soon, sadly. This painting is a commission I am finalizing, inspired by Alaska. I would love to get back up there again!

That’s right, a group of owls is called a parliament. I had to look it up, such a distinguished and appropriate title. Now they are generally solitary birds so this is pretty worthless trivia, still must remember!
Another unusual painting in my Apocalyptic Bloom series. This is an ongoing collection of paintings I am creating for no discernible reason… that’s really how it ought to be!
Actually the sun is shining like crazy today. Spring has really come to North Idaho and I am thrilled! My studio on the other hand is collecting apocalyptic paintings.
My newest painting in an ongoing series I call Apocalyptic Bloom. I have been trying to build a collection of these works but have sold off a few. Putting together and intriguing show.
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!
