Return to Latest Blog



Good Afternoon  Cool day today and I have had a cold for about a week now. Seems like it is improving so have been indoors quite abit. I have been wanting to do a blog a month and this one is the first in awhile so I am doing it today. So lets get into it. 

Nocturnal Movements is a 18x36 Oil on a gallery wrapped canvas. This painting took up most of the month of January. I think it came out more early dawn then nocturnal. I studied some paintings of well known Western Artists Bill Gollings, Bill Anton, Olaf Wieghorst. The best of the Western Nocturnal Artists has to be Frank Tenney Johnson. His paintings utlized moonlight and blue colors to make his paintings come alive at night.

This painting has a very limited pallete but needs more blues to be a truer nocturnal painting. With all the struggles of this paintings it was a  great learning curve and I think a great start to more real nocturnal paintings. 

 Not to much on the gallery scene locally. RP Funding Center currently has a show up for the lakeland Art Guild. I will update on any shows or galleries I am working with. All for today have a blessed week and go 49ers at the Super Bowl. See ya!
