I dug out an older board with some texture. Stripped off the painting and made this one. It’s the classic wash rinse and repeat.
New work from another time. This seems like a concept for another series. Time is short and there is only so much that can be done.
I am pretty excited about the atmosphere in this painting. It was almost finished last week but I came in with a little more shadow and contrast. It was just the thing.
My finished storm collection. Varnished, framed and ready to pack. Two of these will head to Horizon Fine Art Gallery In Jackson, Wyoming. The two on the left will go to private collectors.
This is the painting I had been building to with my 10″ studies of the Kootenai Valley. There is a mighty and powerful river there but I was entranced with the small trickling streams and ditches. Cold but amazing place. I wanted to stay until dark but when we nearly got the car stuck leaving seemed like a pretty good idea!
Five new paintings shipped to Horizon Fine Art Gallery in Jackson, Wyoming! I am excited to be sending more art to Jackson Hole. Such a beautiful place and a strong art community.
Winter Veil 11”x14” acrylic on wood panel
My recent winter paintings on the studio table. We are due for much colder temperatures and heavy snowfall. In other words I am sure there will be more of these!
In North Idaho winter is a very real season. I love to be in the studio working this time of year! I don’t feel guilty about being inside, and it’s such a beautiful view. I decided to capture a little of the winter feel in these small paintings. I will probably do a couple larger paintings on the theme soon.
I hope everyone is staying warm!
I have always loved big empty spaces. No buildings no roads. There are not enough of these places today.
Besides the glorious desolation it is the atmosphere. The feeling of distance and light. I try to capture that feeling in my work, try is all I can do.
I realized I am neglecting the beauty of the season. Frequently we have grey winter skies in North Idaho. The bright snow and steely water. It has an undeniable beauty even on the darkest days.
