I have been painting a lot of sunsets lately. Trying to capture the color shifts and play of light and atmosphere is something I am obsessed with!
I never took a finished photo of this painting. I still don’t have a proper photo! It is at least an interesting contrast in environments.
This painting is shipping to England today!
I am spending a lot of time varnishing, framing and packing art. So much work goes into each painting, I need an unpaid assistant!
This is a small collection of 10″x8″ paintings. I am experimenting with more aggressive mark making trying to boldly capture the morning light.
I am currently working on smaller paintings. After so many shows and deadlines this year I just want to paint and experiment and see where it goes!
I have taken on a commission to paint some small paintings at an unusual size. So I took the opportunity to prepare a number of extra boards at that size.
The title pretty much describes it. I love fog lifting through the trees in the early morning. Firs and pines standing still while light and shadows shift and swirl.
This is the second forest painting I have completed recently. The trees were inspired by my front yard! Both of the paintings are 24″x30″ acrylic paintings.
I have been meaning to paint some forest scenes for some time. I finally have completed one of the paintings on a 24″x30″ board.
I took a road trip down to Baker City yesterday afternoon. I took the long way because it looked like the more scenic route. I generally want to get from A to B as quickly as possible but the spring Palouse drew me in.
I knew I had been on the road before but it would have been years ago in my college days. I saw a sign for the Palouse Falls and impulsively extended the trip slightly more. It was worth the 4 mile detour! The Falls were roaring with the spring runoff. It was also the warmest weather I have seen since last September! Like being transported into a future/past summer.
