I recently completed this little painting. It has a nice sense of mystery and light.
This little 14″x11″ painting is a studio in atmosphere and light, like so much of my work.
I am working on a bunch of new paintings for my upcoming Pendleton, Oregon solo show. I will put this one in a floating frame for the show!
This 36″x48″ painting has been part of my exhibit collection since late last fall. Yesterday it sold at the McVarish Gallery in Astoria, Oregon. This is one of my favorite recent large scale paintings, I hope it adds some intrigue and drama to it’s new home!
I sold this painting last fall. I had painted it on an especially sad day. I embraced the sorrow I felt during another dark milepost and made something worthwhile. I have always liked moody imagery and this one was a standout.
Another small painting with a large sense of scale. This acrylic/open acrylic painting on panel is 9″x7″.
I have been painting a lot of ocean paintings of late! This is a 20″x16″ acrylic painting on panel.
This weekend I took the big road trip to pack up my Bainbridge Island solo show. On my return I took the ferry across to Edmonds, Wa and dropped this painting off at its new home. This is Ryan holding the painting, one of my very best friends. He talked me into putting my art online, I was resistant for years! He also told me about WordPress and I started my Instagram account shortly there after (@bsostrom) on his recommendation. Thanks Ryan!
This little 9″x7″ painting was a little experiment. I am playing around with some ideas with an eye towards larger work.
I painted this on a paintbook by edge gear pro. Really nice piece of equipment. It has a light mounted on top which especially helpful.
A quick snapshot of my studio counter top. I had been working on some small pieces but now will move onto larger works. I was approached about having a show in Astoria, Oregon in June… I couldn’t say no!
I made this little video of the painting in progress. It is on a paintbook by “edge pro gear”. A pretty slick setup made for outdoor painting but it works great in a studio as well. It has a light mounted on top which provides amazing lighting to work with. It uses magnets to hold the artwork to the box.
