The terrible forest fires of the west this summer were heartbreaking. The only silver lining was the incredible sunrise and sunsets but I hope we don’t see more fires in coming years… seems to be the way things are headed though.
This painting is 24”x36” acrylic and open acrylic paint.
My recent collection of large paintings. These are all on deep cradled 36”x48” boards.
As the seasons change and the snow marches down the mountains I am seeing a lot more days like I represented in this painting. This one is 48”x36” painted on a 2” cradled board. I recently sold off a big painting so I had the perfect space available on my studio wall.
I have a few solo shows coming up in the next 5 months so odds are this one will be doing some traveling.
This is a 14”x11” acrylic painting. There is an intriguing quality to the slick silvery body of a trout, it makes for a compelling subject. They are one of the creatures that live in that big body of water I have become fairly obsessed with so it is nice to pay tribute to the mighty rainbow trout.
I have some really large storage drawers in my studio. I have found the are not only great for storage but a great way to protect drying artwork.
This weekend I unexpectedly sold this 48″x36″ cow painting. I have mixed feelings about selling it but am excited it is moving to Jackson, Wyoming. A really good friend’s sister purchased it for her house so I hope to see it again someday!
Three small acrylic paintings. One was done on commission and the others just for fun!
This is a 6″x6″ acrylic calf painting I recently finished.
This is a small acrylic painting I am doing on commission. It is 6″x6″ and I decided to do a couple of them while I was at it. I will post the second one later in the week!
This is a painting I did ages ago. I was painting over a very coarse texture created with modeling paste.
I have always been a fan of bison, though they are a tragic symbol.
