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.
This painting was part of my solo exhibit back in 2019. I am currently working hard to complete a collection of paintings for my next show at RiverSea Gallery opening June 11th!
WIP in the studio today. Hard winds kicking up on the lake today, making for a timely painting.
This video shows some of the finalizing that goes into an already finished painting! I have since shipped this one to Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado. It was a commission arranged through the gallery.
Final studio capture of this winter scene. Inspired by my short walk to the art studio. Winter has been lovely but I am looking forward to a change in the season.
This large seascape was sold through the Grand Bohemian Gallery in Saint Augustine, Florida. Today I will be carefully packing and shipping this painting to its new home!
More nocturnal painting happening in the studio. Outside the wind is howling and everything is frozen. The moon is beautiful yet indifferent.
A little inspiration from Hawaii. I went most of my life never visiting the islands but traveled there twice this year. Lately I have been fantasizing about retiring there… I probably won’t retire just fall over.
I am working on a couple large cloudscapes. I like brooding work that is both beautiful and a bit surreal. I think of these works as psychological paintings or dreamscapes.
Short winter days often bring dramatic conclusions. As pretty as the sunset is looking to the East is often more dramatic. The snow covered mountains get blasted with the final shot of sunlight.
