The snows are deep. It has a startling beauty. I know it will lose its charm. This one is heading to Abend Gallery, in Denver.
The other day we received 8″ of snow. It is always startling to wake up to such a dramatic shift in the world.
I abandoned what I was working on in the studio and did a couple moody snow scenes. Fun capturing the vibe right outside my window.
Three small acrylic paintings, each 5″x7″. I am working on small pieces in preparation for larger works. The middle painting just sold this morning.
A brooding forest scene. Experimenting with some new ideas.
Chasing the beautiful colors of fall. I decided I had better try to capture just a little of the fall magic. The colors have been stunning and quickly shifting by the day.
These three paintings are off to Radius Gallery in Missoula, Montana. Part of a holiday exhibit.
Some small pieces while I wrap up some very large work. It is difficult for me to focus strictly on framing and varnishing… had to squeeze in a little painting.
I live in North Idaho, conifer forests carpet the mountains. I tend to put my artistic focus into the big open spaces of Lake Pend Oreille. I do love the forest though and have wanted to capture the dappled light that blazes through the darkness.
I was inspired to paint a few forest scenes. I live in a heavily timbered part of the planet. This first painting is reminiscent of the view from a small window in my studio. I like the wall of trees and occasionally spot turkeys, grouse and deer passing through on their way to the water.
This is the second forest painting I have completed recently. The trees were inspired by my front yard! Both of the paintings are 24″x30″ acrylic paintings.
