Morning

Morning – 8”x10”, acrylic

A vibrant little painting from February of this year. I was painting a lot of color studies and smaller works. always a useful approach before working on larger paintings. A faster way to experiment with color, value, composition and concepts than a big panel. Of course in the end I just moved on without following many of these threads.

Selkirk Mountains

Selkirk Mountains – 18”x24”, acrylic

Inspiration from my backyard. This painting will be at my solo exhibit at Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina.

For the past eight years I have had two or three solo shows each year, all over the country. During the pandemic I decided to limit my big exhibitions to one a year. This year it is North Carolina. In 2022 I have a solo exhibit on the Oregon coast.

I have partnered with Epik Canvas for a limited run of prints of my paintings on canvas. I have selected ten paintings for this project and they are available in a wide array of sizes and configurations.

Shipping Work!

11”x14” & 16”x16”, acrylic

I have just shipped a couple of new paintings to new homes. One is headed to the UK and the other heading to Ohio in the States.

Though carefully wrapping, packing and shipping work isn’t my favorite aspect of the gig… it is a pleasure. It always feels good to send work to clients.

It also means I have less work for my upcoming show… better get back to it. Enjoy your Friday!
