And Yet They Had Hope

Paintings are often mirrors that reflect us back to ourselves without us realizing it. When I was in Terzian Galleries dropping some paintings off, I loved hearing comments about this piece. The people coming in, either loved it or hated it, there was no in between. They didn't know I was listening, or that I had painted it. Their feedback was fascinating to me. The title explains my views.

Crisis Adverted

Crisis Adverted... For Now, 30"x 40", oil on canvas.

Sometimes paintings come together at the right moment to put scattered puzzle pieces together and make something you were confused about, a bit more clear. Sometimes paintings appear on the surface to seem like a fun lighthearted scene, when in reality they come directly from the soul of the person who made it.

To Late Starts and Second Chances

To Late Starts and Second Chances, 42"x 42", oil on canvas

There is something so beautiful and graceful about the way horses run. I could paint them forever. I am glad this one found a good home.

Courage Abound, 36"x 36", oil on canvas

The Mists of the Deep, 36"x 36", oil on canvas

Something about these Divers is so fascinating. They were very daring to head underwater not knowing if their gear was going to help or hurt them. It took them hours to get into these suits, I doubt they could get out quickly.

Defying Gravity

This painting is about all of us. We all at some point have to take a risk. And while not as drastic as balancing on the edge of a building, we sometimes feel that it may be. Greatness is usually on the other side of the fear we feel. Add to that the voices of doubt that constantly challenge our hopes, dreams and beliefs. The "voices of reason" often seem to add to the resistance and holds us back. 

I say risk, dream, grow, evolve, challenge the mountain and yourself.

Helper One Show at Finch Lane Gallery

I recently participated in a show at the Finch Lane Gallery. The show centers around Paul Davis, Dave Dornan, John Erickson, and Tony Smith and what they did at the U of U and in Helper, Utah. The show is filled with amazing paintings and will be hanging until the end of February. If you are into art I'd highly recommend stopping in.  

This is the piece I hung, The Moment After Impact, 40"x 40", oil on canvas.

Going Forth

Paintings are similar to mirrors, they reflect back more about us than we realize. Our reactions often expose things about us that we do not expect.

Going Forth for me is a painting about hope, clinging to the one light on the horizon and moving toward it. Others have told me it expresses the exact opposite, or at least until they read the title.
