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!

Scotchman Peak

Scotchman Peak 12”x16”

This painting is mostly about the light. It does also have a regionally famous peak as its namesake. This lovely mountain is east of where I live in North Idaho. I can see the peak when I am out on Lake Pend Oreille.

Last year I took a small plane ride from Dover Bay that flew directly over the peak. At the summit a small herd of mountain goats were milling about. Now when I see Scotchman Peak I think about the goats.

Radius Gallery

Today I dropped of ten paintings at the Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana.

A really nice contemporary art gallery in a fun Montana town. If you are in the area the gallery is definitely worth a visit. Always a beautiful mix of art on display. I am excited to have some of my work at Radius now!

Shipping to Kuwait

Art sales are always a good thing in my line of work but there is something especially thrilling about sending my work abroad. I have traveled a bit in my life but now my artwork resides in many places I have never been. It feels a little like writing my initials in wet concrete, “I was once in this world”.
