I worked with an architect to design my studio. I am now 7 years in on this dream. I’m always seeing things I want to change. The truth is I am super fortunate to have such a great creative space. A place to focus my skills and imagination. Restless as my spirit is, I would still hate to walk away. Time doesn’t stop and work continues until it doesn’t.
A large seascape in the studio. I love empty atmospheric paintings. This is a landscape void of land, filled with light. Check out the goofy reel to see it moving around in my studio!
I have been rearranging and clearing out my studio for a few months. Trying to optimize the space and make it more aesthetically pleasing. Along the way I have found some forgotten paintings that I really like. These two were from 2018, They will be on display in my studio once again!
Beyond Today (SOLD)
I was pleased to learn that this painting was sold through Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. Really top notch gallery.
Playing around with some 12”x16” canvas panels in the studio. A bit of exploration for potential larger works to come.
Do you do what you LOVE?
Some mornings I am in the groove, this has been a good one! I love spending my time painting, never thought I would be able to do this full time. Very grateful things have gone the way they have.
This photo was taken 5 weeks ago, much warmer days. Now I am wearing layers and a stocking cap in the studio. Acrylic paint dries much more slowly with these temperatures which is a benefit of the season!
Bad day in the studio…
Things go wrong, it happens all the time. I had just varnished this painting over the weekend. It was going to a gallery I work with in Florida… now it will be sanded down. Sometimes I hurry when I should take my time. It’s a bummer but I will paint something better…creation is medicine.
If only I had tossed soup on the painting, I could have saved the world.
A new painting in my studio today. Freshly signed and varnished! I will frame it soon and then decide which gallery to send it to.
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.
