I have recently thought more of travel and how I can paint when I am on trips at home and abroad. I have been experimenting with gouache on paper trying to find a quick way to capture imagery and mood.
I am varnishing and framing a collection of paintings. I just signed a contract to be represented by The Grand Bohemian Gallery. They have galleries at upscale resorts around the country. once I finally get the work together I will post it here!
One last study before starting a 36”x24” commission. This one is a loose take on the composition, values and colors. The large painting will be much more detailed but I love the loose vibe and motion of this small take.
A nice bit of drama with this piece. I am starting a large commission so I have been doing some related studies.
Reflections, ripples and refracting light. Water is a beautiful thing to observe and echo.
4th of July family weekend! I enlisted my wonderful niece and nephew to display this new painting!
I have been painting 7 days a week for ages. It was honestly difficult to think of taking a break for the 4th. So sad to have the visit end, now I wonder why I am working so much…
Final capture of this piece. Enjoying a few days off to spend time with family, happy 4th of July!
I have been painting a lot of sunsets lately. Trying to capture the color shifts and play of light and atmosphere is something I am obsessed with!
Detail from a wave commission I am finishing. 50”x20”, I will be posting more from this.
I put some finishing touches on this painting. Light transitioning across clouds and the landscape is always a source of inspiration.
I am going to spend the day painting but vowed to take Sunday off. The sun is going to shine and the lake is calling. This morning I saw an otter, spring is making me smile.
