This large painting is shipping to Greenville, South Carolina today! It will be available through the Grand Bohemian Gallery.
I am starting on a series of autumnal forest paintings. This time of year as the daylight fades and the sun hangs low, I feel it in so many ways. The beauty shifts and there is that reminder of days passing and time slipping away. I am leaning into the beauty of the hours.

Travelers Time (SOLD)
So pleased to have sold this to a collector in Florida! Frighteningly it was somehow delivered to the wrong address but luckily found it’s way home! Shipping is so expensive nowadays yet risky… now a very scary hurricane headed to Florida. I hope everyone is safe.
I have been growing hops for over 5 years now. These are Cascade Hops. I like the hoppy fragrance and enjoy the way they mark the seasons. It is spring when the vines finally start to bust out of the ground. Sadly the conclusion to summer when the hops are ripe.
I have not grown them for any practical reason just a decoration. This year a brewery in town, MickDuff’s Brewery, is collecting hops from private growers for a special brew. So I harvested 4 lbs of hops and delivered them to the brewery. I now have a $20 gift card for MickDuff’s… so professional farmer?
A new painting in my studio today. Freshly signed and varnished! I will frame it soon and then decide which gallery to send it to.
Show Ending July 5th!
It is hard to believe my solo show is already wrapping up. I have never been more proud of a body of work. A full year in the making, the last time the pieces will be together.
Dreams Between Darkness
Today is the day. My solo show is opening at RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. One year worth of work on display. Come check it out in person if you are able!
Greeting Dawn (SOLD)
This small painting just sold through Grand Bohemian Gallery in St Augustine, Florida. This was a painting I did last Fall. I find myself again, this year, painting forest scenes in intense autumn sunlight. Clearly this time of year that low sun brings inspiration.
March of Time
Another 12” square on my easel. Priming a huge number of wood panels was definitely a good idea. I want to spend my time painting without all the prep work between moments at the easel.
Time is grinding us all back to star dust. I wish I could stockpile the good days.
