One of four paintings I am dropping off at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California today!
This painting is one of 24 works bound for RiverSea Gallery!
Atmosphere and lighting are often components of my paintings that drive my work. Finding form yet maintaining a sense of mystery.
I have often come back to sunsets as a subject. Of course it is an undeniably beautiful transition but there is also a bit of sadness. Everything ends, we all know this and we are endlessly reminded. I guess that is part of the appeal of sunsets, the wedding of beauty and sorrow.
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 have been pretty obsessed with the sunrises and sunsets on Lake Pend Oreille. Conveniently I have a tough time sleeping during normal hours so that makes it easier to witness the incredibly early dawn.
Not to complain but I’m always a little sad after the summer solstice. The first official day of summer is also when the daylight starts to dwindle. That’s life in a nutshell.
Another new painting bound for my show at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
Another one of my small paintings. I found these little frames in my studio. I don’t remember why I bought them but decided the time was right!
I finished these two small sunset paintings. I have a number of small frames and am excited to fill them! These will probably be headed to my solo show in Astoria, Oregon in July.
Lately I have been working on some small paintings! I have some very large panels patiently waiting in the wings so stay tuned!
A morning of framing and mounting hangers on sold pieces. This one is headed to Australia!
