Return to the Land

It's been ages since I painted any landscapes, but on a recent trip to Idaho to visit my best friend Cathy I was so stirred by the farmland that I took a whole bunch of photographs to use for references so I could do a series of landscapes. I'm planning on using acrylic on paper. It's been so long since I've worked on paper and I'm excited by the prospect. Here is a phenomenal picture of the moon rising. The colors were amazing, bold, yet compressed. Ahhh!

I'm Back

Yes, after three months of distraction I've ended my sabbatical. There has to be something said for the benefit of a deadline and right now I'm very grateful to A Muse Gallery in Columbus for being just the impetus to get me off my keister and painting again. If you're near Columbus in October, stop by the gallery to see the show.
My kids are slated to start school next week and I'm excited to get back to the studio with some regularity again. Ahh, I didn't realize how much I missed having a schedule. I'm hoping to get new work out to all my galleries and finally make some progress with the figurative paintings I've been working on for a collective show that I'm preparing to do with my brother.

Here are a few of the paintings I sent to the Columbus Gallery.

A Muse Gallery requested some monochromatic paintings and I had fun doing number of black and white paintings.
