Featured Artist!

A superstorm blew into Park City, Utah on February 18th, 2016. The temperature dropped twenty degrees in five minutes when the storm overtook our town. I was so captivated by the drama happening in the sky, I pulled my car over to the side of the road and took pictures of the event. I have worked a whole series of paintings around that event, experimenting with the clouds, developing my techniques, exposing the reflective silver of the panels by scraping, buffing, and simply leaving it as negative space. My work is difficult to capture in a photograph as the reflective light quality is lost in the transition to a digital format.  The best way to experience my paintings is to visit the Summit Gallery or the gallery wall at Oohs and Aah's in Park City, Utah to see my original works.

Mark your calendars! I will be the “Featured Artist” on Friday, February 22, 2019 at the Summit Gallery, 675 Main St., Park City, UT!  The event is from 6 to 9pm, I would love to see you all there!

I have been approached by several people asking for larger vertical works to hang over a fireplace or on a view wall next to or over a staircase.  This panel is as big as they come!   I did a lot of sketching, trying to make a composition work for  this elongated rectangle and came up with a fan format, the swirling clouds, the sliver mountains on the horizon and the reflective light and shadow pattern on the road all converge toward an apex to the right of the panel.
