Your Fire

I have painted some small campfire paintings with the intention of eventually working on larger ones. Currently the largest boards I have prepped are 11″x14″ so I decided to paint some at that size. Just large enough to give me more freedom of movement! I sold this one before I posted it on Instagram. The woman who purchased it saw it on my “story” which is a video limited to 24 hours. She lives in Kuwait, excited to be sending work to a country I have not mailed to previously!

Minted Murals!

I recently became a minted artist. I am excited about new opportunities and the print world is something I have never explored. If you are not familiar with minted, they are a large online marketplace of independent artists and designers. They use crowdsourcing to select winning designs and their minted members. From their website you can order art prints, home decor and stationary.

Minted has launched “Wall murals” so for a very limited time you can buy massive prints of three of my paintings! I am including a link in this blog to all three murals!

To the gallery

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!

Water in the frame

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!
