This painting is part of my “Transitions” show currently on exhibit at McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
The atmosphere of this particular painting is really delicate. The shoreline a haunted edge barely existing along the expansive water. I am always striving to capture the sense of beauty I see with subtle mark making and simple gestures. It is such a difficult thing to do but when it works it feels like magic!
This acrylic painting is one of three in a series. Yesterday I sold one of the set but the buyer agreed to let me bring it to the Astoria show, June 9th, which was great! I was not planning on another show so soon and had signed up for a bunch of commissions. I have too much to do but I am really thankful to have people interested in my work.
This is a 12″x12″ acrylic painting. I have done three sunset related paintings this size. All three will be making an appearance at my Astoria, Oregon show June 9th. I will post more info about the show as it approaches!
I am working on a series of colorful “edge of day” paintings. I very frequently work with a rather muted palette so the color is an exciting excursion. It is all about the light and atmosphere so I am letting these images be suggestive and abstracted.
This Painting is currently hanging on Bainbridge Island. It is part of the collection I have at the Bainbridge Performing Arts Gallery through April 1st. The painting is 24″x18″ and has a black floating frame.
