A quick little glimpse into my studio today. This painting is starting to take shape. Mood, mystery and atmosphere always elements I pursue in my work. Have a great weekend.
I will be varnishing and framing this painting during the weekend. It is a commission that will be displayed with an older painting of my called “the hermit”.
Final shot of this painting before I frame it. I am crazy busy varnishing, framing and installing hardware. All my work has to be wrapped boxed and shipped to Abend Gallery in Denver within a week!
A little stress finalizing a solo show. I keep squeezing in painting time, cannot help it.
Final capture of this piece. Enjoying a few days off to spend time with family, happy 4th of July!
Working on some 20” square wooden panels. I used to avoid the square format. Now I appreciate the fact that they are so void of composition, so blank before the paint.
An ancient light casting warmth and fear. Dancing to a rhythm it blends into the night. The question lost with a crack and spark.
Well it’s the weekend everybody! Actually for me it’s just another morning in the studio. I really wouldn’t have it any other way.
I am preparing work for my Vashon Island exhibit opening October 4th. I am also playing around with some small semi haunted forest paintings.
This little painting went to Abend Gallery a while back. I am busy working on a body of work for a Vashon Island Exhibit in October then switching to smaller works like this for a number of galleries.

A long weekend of varnishing and framing for my upcoming show. Table Saw issues were a major setback. Sadly very little painting was done.
I finalized work on another commission. I intensified the colors and mounted the painting in a floater frame. They wanted a “Montana” inspired grassland, I made light the star of the show. I really like the loose quality of the grass, some really fresh color blends.
Shipping this painting to Western Washington and a couple small works to Robert Lange Studios in Charleston, South Carolina. I have been working nonstop so hoping to relax a bit this Memorial Day Weekend. I hope everyone else enjoys a long weekend!
