Playing with some low relief textures. If you want a perfectly smooth application of the primer (gesso) a brush is a better choice. To get some interesting textures in the surface a knife is always fun. I use palette knives constantly for everything.
Weaving Color (final)
Final photograph of this painting in the studio.
One of three small paintings inspired by that sweet summer sun. I will post the three paintings together next week!
Nowhere is Forever (SOLD)
I was happy to learn this painting sold through RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. I believe it now lives in Texas!
I am painting a collection of square 20” landscapes on wooden panels. This is the third painting in the series. I am hoping to do four more paintings this size!
Where shall you take us?
Another square cloud exploration.

Catching up with more high resolution photos of recent work.
Creating cloudscapes filled with light, shadow and mystery.
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!
