New Painting from the studio!

This painting was inspired by a trip along the banks of the Colorado River near Moab, Ut. The painting reflects the sky and land colliding together in a swirling ripple.

This painting was inspired by a trip down the Middle Fork of the Salmon River and the hot springs. It is a layered piece that took many different paths along the way to completion.

Just sold by Nine dot Arts to a company in Seattle, Wa. Thank you! 


This painting is inspired by fragments of abstract reflections on water. The water in constant movement takes these reflections and breaks them into fragments that are constantly shifting and changing.
 

New Work from the Studio!

I have been spending quite a bit of time in the studio painting and loving the time spent there.  I have been inspired by recent trips on the Middle Fork of the Salmon River, the banks of the Colorado River, to visits to the MOMA in San Francisco and the DAM in Denver, and to the pond just a short walk from my house. Each painting works to open new ideas for the next and a momentum of ideas occurs with the need to express and experiment with those ideas. Sometimes it is hard to narrow down which idea to work on next. Of course, there are always a few paintings that in my mind did not quite work as expected. Luckily, as an oil painter I can paint over those less than satisfying paintings. In doing so it allows for a freedom of knowing that the first painting did not work out so the painting that covers it is not so precious. I can experiment and just see what occurs which is so vital to the creative process. The ability to focus on my painting has created a momentum that is hard to have when painting was second or third in my list of priorities. It is such a gift and treat to have the time to devote to my work and see it grow and thrive. Studio time is something I am very grateful for and I cherish the time to work in the studio.
