The Sound of Thunder

 

Some pieces are just extra special. This piece felt like opening a new door to a new place. A place exciting and ominous, like when there is a storm coming and you can feel the energy in the air right before the thunder roars. This was also my first time painting a buffalo. They seem very mysterious and spiritual to me. Like little hints of an old legend that has been forgotten. I can’t seem to stop drawing and painting them now.

Beautiful Historic Main Street in Park City, I love driving out here to drop work off at the Gallery.

Off to the Gallery

I have been painting up a storm in my studio and am ready to take some new work out to Silver Queen Gallery in Park City. Its always hard to say goodbye.

Its funny how the subjects and energy in my pieces can change but always still feel like part of the same family. The colors, animals and energy is very affected by the things I’m experiencing at the time. The books I read and music I listen to can impact my work immensely. For example, I just finished the (Pulitzer Prize -winning) epic novel Lonesome Dove by Larry McMurtry. It’s the only novel I’ve read in the Western genre but I really connected to it, its beautiful and terrible. It’s just under 900 pages so it took me a few months to get through, but wow it haunted me for ages afterwards. Images of buffalo, and the shadows of the people that came before me, the harshness, grit, simplicity, and resilience of the human spirit… all that energy has found it’s way into my work. As seen through my strange eyes and and heart of course.

 

Now Showing in The Silver Queen Fine Art Gallery




 

Between the beautiful mountains and ski resorts, the world renowned Sundance Film Festival, and historic Main Street with its array of Art Galleries, Park City is easily one of my favorite cities on the planet. I was lucky enough to grow up snowboarding in those mountains and was able to enjoy all that the city has to offer as I live an hour away. I have always dreamed of having my artwork in one of the distinguished galleries. I am so excited to say that I will now be showing my artwork at the Silver Queen Gallery! The gallery in on historic Main street and run by lovely people. I can’t wait to get started.
