Riding The Wind

 

Riding The Wind. 16"x20" acrylic on canvas. 

I am a lover of Corvids (not to be confused by covid)! This piece is a revisit of a similar raven I did for a commission a few years ago. I enjoyed it so much I thought I would do another. Let me know if you would like him in your house!

Flying Toward the Light

 

I just finished this piece. I was inspired by Spring, migration and the search for balance in developing this piece. 29"x18.5" Acrylic and metal leaf on a spalled (did I spell that right?) maple wood panel. click to see the whole painting!

 The Birds Show!


I always look forward to the late winter "bird show" at the Smith and Vallee Gallery in Edison each year. It is perfectly timed for the peak of winter birding in the Samish Flats area. This show is full of top notch bird art. This year I have submitted Northwest Carver. This piece is acrylic and metal leaf on a beautiful repurposed wood panel. The show runs through the month of February. Head on over and enjoy a morning birding pickup a lunch at one of the wonderful eateries in Edison and then walk through this jaw dropping exhibit.

Birdland!

 I have been invited to show a piece at the Birdland show at the always awesome Smith and Vallee gallery. The piece I submitted, The Watcher, was painted on a repurposed "opps" cabinet door from Smith and Vallee Cabinets. The show will take place at Smith and Vallee Gallery in Edison from February 6th through the 28th. They are very careful in following Covid 19 PPE, so bring a mask and enjoy!

Want to purchase some of my art? Check out my new Etsy Shop

Belted Kingfisher and the Sun. Acrylic and goldleaf on heavy archival paper. 8"x6"
In this time up upheaval it seemed like a good time to become a bit more tech savy and work on marketing my art a bit more independently. I have set up an Etsy shop titled Salnoran Studios. I have posted my recent stylized works that have been fun to do and I have kept them at a very affordable price. Check out my shop by clicking this link (Salnoran Studios - Etsy). I would love to hear what you think of it.
