Always had a soft spot for this painting, though it has been tough to photograph. It will be part of my upcoming solo show “Dreams between Darkness” opening June 11th at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. Check out the video to see it living in the studio.
A new painting in the studio. This one is a work in progress, a dramatic experiment. I am going to be doing a few in a series… the grand adventure.
As a painter I have the freedom to follow my whims wherever they ramble. I am pursuing some work that is a bit more fantastical with no specific plan. The day I started to make real progress on this piece I found out Mark Lanegan passed on. Sadly that is burned into my brain, maybe appropriately so.
These small paintings are from a bonus instagram account named cult_of_doodle. Last year I was using left over paint at the end of the day and painting little images without planning. It was a liberating and exciting way to paint. I found that it spawned new creative ideas and helped me generate more expressive work. We shall see if this continues…
I will be varnishing and framing this painting during the weekend. It is a commission that will be displayed with an older painting of my called “the hermit”.
This painting sold in February of this year through RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I am excited to have another solo show with them summer of 2022.
This surreal sunset has perhaps my favorite title to date. The painting will be part of my large solo show opening this Friday at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina!
A mesmerizing painting from a couple years back. This piece is available through RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.
I often find myself painting work I think of as “dreamscapes”. The driving focus of this piece is mood, light and atmosphere. The result not so much a literal translation of scenery but a slightly surreal departure from reality.
Yesterday I heard this painting sold through RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon! This piece is one of my favorites, a marriage of mystery and menace. The painting now lives in Portland, Oregon.
