In my life I have felt like a negative soul. Still it seems the act of creation is an act of optimism.
What can I tell you, I like clouds. A close up on one catching the last light. Though the days are getting a bit longer the sun is still low. Often clouds seem to be the only ones enjoying the sunshine.
I have a number of 30″x24″ panels primed for painting, I love working at this scale. Large enough that you have a sense of freedom moving around the surface but not so large that it is awkward in the studio. I did have to stand on a chair to get far enough away for a photo, so a little awkward!
I am pretty obsessed with brooding epic scenes. I keep getting wound up about new ideas but I realize this is a common thread.
Low clouds and limited distance create a feeling of infinity. A sense of the unknown that I really enjoy. This time of year it is a prelude to the coming snows of winter.
Watching snow fall on a stormy lake is one of my favorite things about winter… certainly better than shoveling snow!
This is the second painting on a theme! I have plans to make some really large works in this series.
For now I must focus on my upcoming shows! Not sure if these will be included or not?!? Decisions still to be made!
Welcome spring! Here are some small paintings I did in the first half of March. These are all 10″x10″ acrylic paintings on plexiglass.
I am looking forward to the longer days and much more sunshine!
