a new comission leaves the studio!

I wanted to share this brand new painting with all of you, this finally shipped out last week:

Due to the more panoramic format it doesn’t share well on Instagram. This client was a dream, and gave me plenty of time so that the painting could evolve the way i wanted it to. This was composed from sketches done from life last summer, and using a few photos as an aid to memory. It was an interesting process, and it’s been very interesting to engage with a sense of place in a somewhat less abstract, more structural and sculptural way. Big thanks to Mineral School, too, for providing a wonderful home and studio in the mountains for a couple weeks, 9 months later i am still squeezing inspiration from that time <3
