Inspiration

Fading Distance, 20”x50” acrylic

A very tall painting inspired by a summer trek to Glacier National Park. This piece will be at my October show on Vashon Island. The show opens October 4th at Vashon Center for the Arts. The exhibit will display the work of four artists.

Ode to Summer

Summer, 10”x10” acrylic

Summer,

Once again you made me your fool. All those warm days and late nights the sun barely resting. I tried so hard to keep you by my side.

Now you are off to some southern land. I laugh as you go but I will never forgive you. I prize my solitude and I will cling to the darkness. Maybe I will pine over an old photo of you this winter. In April a sparrow might spark a faint memory.

Damn, I just want you to come back.

Travels with Art

Mercies, 30”x24” acrylic

I have spent a lot of time this summer delivering art and and visiting galleries. I am currently on a road trip to close out my “Apocalyptic Beauty” exhibit. I took a slight detour to drop off a painting I sold to a great friend recently. He immediately took down a framed print and hung this painting in its place of honor. Now off to Astoria, Oregon!
