These four paintings were some works I installed at “Evans Brothers” last night. This Sandpoint coffee shop has regular art shows and is a great place to go in Sandpoint, Idaho. In total I have 26 paintings on display, so if you happen to be in North Idaho…
I am drawn back to moody water scenes… probably the change of seasons.
I’m excited to be working on large dibondi panels, they are light weight and will be easier to ship and drag around to art shows!
24″x30″ water painting.
This is the first painting I have finished on dibondi aluminum panel. I primed the surface and painted as I normally would. I mounted d-ring hangers on the back and it worked really well! I have been trying to find a way to make my work more transportable for mailing and hauling around to art exhibitions. This seems to work really well and will also be helpful for storage. These paintings can be hung without a frame but would work well with a traditional frame as well.
24”x36” acrylic painting.
Suddenly we have snow at the beginning of November! The lake fades into oblivion like a vast ocean… I love that.
My recent collection of large paintings. These are all on deep cradled 36”x48” boards.
This is a large work in progress (36”x48”). The scale of paintings like this is exciting but on a deep cradled board it renders it very expensive to ship!
I have been working on three large brooding paintings. They will make a small solo show tour this year and next.
As the seasons change and the snow marches down the mountains I am seeing a lot more days like I represented in this painting. This one is 48”x36” painted on a 2” cradled board. I recently sold off a big painting so I had the perfect space available on my studio wall.
I have a few solo shows coming up in the next 5 months so odds are this one will be doing some traveling.
These four paintings are now at the Confluence Gallery in Twisp Washington. I am having a show called “Darkening Light” at that Gallery and it opens this Friday (running through early November). I brought approximately 20 paintings in total for the show.
This is an older painting, two years old. I had been painting desolated man made objects working out the beginning of a series. I had four other chair paintings they all sold aside from this one. “Wait” was actually my favorite of the bunch so now I am pleased to hang it up in the studio. Perhaps I will revisit the idea in the future.
I have some really large storage drawers in my studio. I have found the are not only great for storage but a great way to protect drying artwork.
