A Blog About Oil Painting

Recent Work: April 2018 part 2

/ Landscape Painting

My push to get ready for the Edmonds Art Fair continues. I'm focusing on smaller works so that I'll have more inventory at an affordable price point.

Painting at this scale is a lot of fun, but you have to come up with a constant stream of ideas to keep it going.

For these small works, I will usually do the designs for up to a dozen all at the same time. When I start to paint I can then get into an uninterrupted flow.
