This is the latest selection of paintings making their way to the Elliot Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. This collection is made up of four 12”x9” paintings and one 16”x20” painting. All acrylic/open acrylic paint on cradled birch wood.
I have been sending work regularly to this California gallery and am happy now to have a solo show scheduled at the space for February 2019! I pushed off the date of the show so that I could add to my collection of work after my two remaining solo exhibitions this summer in Oregon (eastern and western).
It will be nice to have a California gallery display my work in the midst of another brooding NW winter. I am not sure if I will fly out for the opening but I plan on flying down with a large shipment of paintings as an early winter reprieve!
Testing out a frame on this 9″x7″. Frames can really give a painting a beautifully finished look. I have been working on panels recently and these are difficult to hang without a frame. So I have purchased a couple of frames to test them out. I typically don’t spend extra money on frames so trying to decide how to move forward with these!
Two little ocean paintings I recently finished. These were sold and will be shipped off to England in early April with some larger works.
Clean water on dirty plastic, sadly it’s usually the other way around.
As the surfaces I work on are developing a filthy patina it makes for an interesting contrast with the paintings. This particular painting is 12″x9″.
This sunset painting is 9″x12″. I often do work that is subdued so it was exciting creating something with do much “heat”. This painting will be on it’s way to a show on Bainbridge Island in just over a week!
I just finished this little 10″x10″ painting. I will probably be taking this to the Bainbridge Island exhibit. Only two weeks until I leave so I have a lot of decisions to make and a lot of pieces to finalize!
A small painting with a lot of light! This one is 8″x8″.
I have a show on Bainbridge Island to install at the end of the month. I am working on a collection for that exhibit. To soon to say what will make the cut!
This moody painting strives to capture some of the delicate light clouds capture when the skies turn dark. This particular painting is 16″x16″.
This 24”x 18” painting has shipped off to a collector in San Francisco, CA. I was saving it for one of my two looming show deadlines but a fella has to make some money when he can!
This painting really has a beautiful apocalyptic vibe which was fun in the studio, plus we find ourselves at 2 minutes to midnight. Hopefully, the purchaser will enjoy this piece in the remaining two minutes!
