In the Frame


I love creating my paintings. But then comes the framing. It's my goal to have my own framer someday, but for now, I'm the framer. To simplify the process a little I stick mostly to two frames, a warm fruitwood, and a gold plein-air. Simplifying the framing also makes the paintings look better when they are exhibited together. This afternoon I was able to frame about 5 paintings, including this nice little piece that I did last summer.

Moonrise at the beach


I revisited a painting spot over the weekend to double check some elements of the scene: snow covered sand dunes down by The Lake. I knew the moon was going to be coming up, so I stayed in my (warm) car to wait. And it was beautiful! The colors in the snow were amazing: violet, turquoise, ultramarine, orange, and green! Photos come no where near capturing the colors. It is going to be fabulous to paint!

Finished Painting










Autumn Sky  is painted and framed, ready for display! It is a larger painting, done in the studio. It is a companion to a smaller painting done on-site, or en plein air.
