Saturday morning Gold

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!

Saturday Morning

High Light 20”x16” acrylic

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.

Rolling on…

Morning Wave 21”x8” acrylic on panel

My small wave paintings continue! This is an aspect ratio that is interesting to work with. It is well suited for something as potentially horizontal as waves breaking.

My next step will be to start the actual commission. That painting is much larger, 60″x23″. Sort of a challenge dealing with a hefty oddly shaped panel.. I tend to flip paintings around and move them about the studio… trying to see it with fresh eyes. Some people keep a small mirror around to see it in reverse. That is something I used to do with digital paintings, flip them. Maybe I need a mirror…

Enjoy your weekend!
