Latest Update: Feb 13th, 2024.



Whenever I finish a new painting or something newsworthy occurs, I'll update this page.   




Spring is around the corner and things are heating up in the studio! 

- Finally finished "#1, Downtown Series, Going To Work, District 1881" 

I've loaded it to the new "Downtown Series" gallery, along with some writing describing a few thoughts on its creation and the inspirations behind it.  

#1, Downtown Series,"Going To Work, District 1881" acrylic on canvas, 30" x 48", 2024.

Putting the last fallen leaf on the overhang of the Uptown Grill.



- Recently repainted a piece from 2019 "Gliding in the Old Growth". This can happen if a painting hangs around the studio too long. 

"Gliding In The Old Growth", acrylic on panel, 20 1/4" x 24", 2019-2023.



- Added a new video a while back! Click here to go to the Video page. 

It's exciting to combine my painting, music/sound, and video interests!




- Other work in progress - #40 in the Sunnyside Series. This series has been a 15 year journey of giving voice to the shoreline of my home waters of Cultus lake, in all it's amazing light and shadow. When painting #1 in 2009, I never imagined painting #40 in 2024. I often wonder now - which one will be the last?


Work in progress, #40, Sunnyside Series, acrylic on canvas, 36" x 72".  This is the second largest painting in the series, after #31.



- Recently added a new little painting in a new series - Fern Figure 1, "In the Place My Wonder Comes From". This is the first painting I've ever done that was inspired by a sculpture that I made. 


- Also recently added a new gallery page with photos of the first piece in a sculpture series I'm excited about titled - "Fern Figure Sculpture Series" - a new addition to my art practice and a first for my website.

This sculpture series is born of living on the land, and making art out of what's around me. It's fun working in 3D and fun working outside the studio, a new direction that I'm excited to explore. This sculpture has already inspired a painting. And now the painting is inspiring more sculptures, ha ha! Love it! More to come!



- Other painting finished a while back:

 #39 in the Sunnyside Series. This one is unlike any other in the series. 


"Still Learning" An exercise in actualization. 


"The Call, #3, Deleted Scenes From An Unmade Movie" series


"The Call", 3 Deleted Scenes From An Unmade Movie Series , acrylic on canvas, 40" x 30".
