Selling “Transitions”

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!

Reflections 9”x7”

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.

Whispered

I just finished this painting last night. It had lingered around the studio in an awkward state for a couple weeks. Something was needed and then it all came together!

This painting is another on large board (24″x30″). I am trying to put together a strong collection for two upcoming shows this winter. Both shows are in Western Washington and they overlap which will make it especially difficult!
