this is a site to share new works as I finish them including paintings, illustrations, hand formed and shaped necklaces. ...and maybe I'll share a story or two about how they came about.
Reaching Light is a multi layered painting-inspired by the sweeping motion of the leaves from an Ash tree. Trees have so many inspiring elements that sometimes I have to focus in on one section to really capture the detail of their beauty. Other times I step back and feel the power of these towering beauties.
Reaching Light is a 30"x30" acrylic painting on stretched canvas with painted edges and 1.5" thick stretcher bars. It is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $975.00
I'm not sure it it's the women's posture, the bottle of wine or the overcast setting that gives this painting such a relaxed ease but something about it just calms me. This little watercolor developed quickly after the initial sketch. My graphite lines can be seen under the light watercolor to give the piece a loose - open feeling.
Overcast with a Good Chance for Wine is a watercolor painting on 140 lb. cold press watercolor paper. The artwork size is 8"x10" - including the 1" white border. Final framed size will be about 9.5" x 11.5". Painting will be available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $160.00 | 218-547-3729
After picking up this fun sized canvas - all I could imagine on it was a Modern Scandinavian garden painting. Bright, with movement and a bit of goofiness was what I was going for. This piece will change the mood of any room it hangs in.
Modern Scandinavian Dandelion Wishes is a 10"x30" acrylic painting on stretched canvas with painted edges. It is available at Peculiar Painter in Walker, MN for $360.00 | 218-547-3729
