Hot Afternoon, 2010. oil on panel 8 x 19.

I love the clouds that rise up in the heat of the afternoon over the San Joaquin Valley.

They are endlessly inspiring to me.

Making Headway

Silence, 2010. oil on panel. 16 x 40, overall.

I have been working on some very large paintings for the last couple of weeks so progress has moved slowly in the studio. This painting is from earlier this summer and is a bit usual for me, it's a small triptych. The center panel a 16 inch square and the sides are each 16 x 12. I don't think I've done any multi-paneled painting in the last ten years.

These panels were put together originally in anticipation for a study for a very large corporate commission eighteen months ago that never materialized. So when the deal fell through the panels laid around my studio waiting to be taken apart again. All the while, the idea I had for the study stubbornly stayed with me. So I decided to paint the study anyway. Each panel will be framed separately, for those who interested in such details.
