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.
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.
More than a year of hard work and love have gone into the creation of my solo show. The exhibit opens tomorrow, July 2nd, at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.
I painted this little commission for a woman in the San Juan Islands, a place I dearly love. She had fond memories of the big lakes of North Idaho. She wanted a little painting that captured her magical memories from the summers in the 70’s and 80’s.
This painting is available through Abend Gallery in Denver, Colorado!
This photo was taken nearly a year ago. I am constantly thinking about the passing of time and how I spend it. It is true you spend time like money but it cannot be replenished. The clock is ticking, can I make the most of this day? I continue to paint each day. It is how I pay my bills but it is also my passion in life. All we can do is follow our enthusiasms and appreciate the good time while we have it.
This one basically named itself. Water is mesmerizing even as it slowly alters the world.
Small study of mood and forest. I have managed to work away a beautiful summer, they disappear so quickly now.
One of three square water panels I have been painting. Water is always a fascination and inspiration in my work. The simplicity and incredible complexity so mesmerizing. A mirror of the world.
