Sacramento

My solo show is ongoing at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, CA. It will run the month of February.

I went down for the second Saturday art opening! It was fun to talk to art enthusiasts and buyers. It was a very successful show for the gallery and myself. So much work goes into such an event, you never know what will happen. I keep my mind focused on the art… it’s all there is to do.

As a painter I tend to be very solitary, in my own head. Funny how much I find myself talking at these shows…

Kootenai

Kootenai Mirror 10”x10” acrylic on wood panel

Last weekend we took a little road trip to the Kootenai National wildlife refuge. We didn’t arrive until the evening but the lighting and views were magnificent! The main loop drive was closed for the winter, but worth the trek regardless!

I have done a few little winter scenes inspired by the evening. I hope to paint a larger image next.

Moving to Australia

10”x10” acrylic paintings

I am not moving to Australia but these two paintings are! Yesterday afternoon I shipped them off so they have a long voyage ahead.

I have only been to Australia once, many years ago. I went to Sydney which is where these works are going. It is such a beautiful city. I wouldn’t mind taking a trip to Australia now to escape the winter. One of these years I will have to get back!

Elliott Fouts Gallery!

I have a solo exhibit at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, Ca. The show takes place February 2nd through February 28th.

I have around 23 finished paintings that I have chosen for the show. Now I need to get the work there! I had considered flying down with a couple giant travel cases but decided it would be more cost effective to ship the paintings over a couple weeks time. So this week I will be packing and shipping like a maniac!

If anyone is in the greater Sacramento area I hope you will check out the show! There is a reception February 9th!

Job to do (prepping for my solo show)

Pend Oreille acrylic on wood panel

Today I will be varnishing and photographing much of my work. As eager as I am to paint I have a looming deadline for my show solo show at Elliott Fouts Gallery in Sacramento, California. The show is the month of February so I need to get my work photographed, varnished, framed, packaged and shipped very soon! Deadlines keep me running!
