One of four paintings I am shipping to Momentum Gallery in Asheville, North Carolina. This is a new gallery for me, excited about the opportunity!
This small painting was just sold by RiverSea Gallery in Astoria, Oregon.

For people not familiar with me and my work I made a grid. Six of these nine paintings were done in 2019. I have been painting my entire life but have been painting full time now for exactly one year. Thanks to those of you that have helped support my efforts!
This small painting is all finished up. I varnished it, cleaned up the edges and hung the hardware over the weekend. Now packing it up for the long journey to Italy. I spent a few months in Siena, Italy while I was in college in the 90’s… when the world was young.
One of four paintings I will be framing and shipping to Abend Gallery in Denver Colorado. This piece is for a small works exhibit at the gallery in November.
I decided this little painting needed more definition. I did a bit more layering to define the shapes and added a bit more saturation.
Calling this one done. It will be part of a small works collection headed to a gallery soon!
Vashon Center for the Arts
Last night was the show opening! I could not attend as I am back in Idaho but the gallery sent photographs. (Photos courtesy of Lynann Politte)
The two vertical paintings together one last time. I delivered the one on the right to a buyer. The one on the left is at my exhibit at the Vashon Center for the Arts on Vashon Island. The show opening is October 4th 6-9:00 PM.
A bit more color glaze and this one is now finished. Signed, varnished and framed in a floater. Packed up for my show on Vashon Island.
I am frantically varnishing and finalizing paintings for my upcoming show. I need to deliver it in less than one week!
In the meantime I sold a couple of small paintings so I am boxing them up today. I was going to bring them to my exhibit but you have to take sales when you can. I have turned down a few sales recently on some of the bigger pieces going to the show but these two are small so what the heck.
