LANDSCAPE PAINTINGS


Old Mill

This painting of crystal mill features the vibrant changing aspens as well as the signature vast Colorado sky. My goal with this piece was to work quickly and efficiently in order to get an energetic rendering without getting stuck in too many details. This is such an interesting location that can create a very dynamic composition in a painting. This image is particularly interesting to me because it features a old decaying man made structure amongst the flourishing natural surrounding. To me, this juxtaposition highlights the temporary nature of human creations and the longevity of our natural world.

Autumn in the Mountains

*SOLD* This painting of Mt. Sneffels started as a simple study but quickly evolved into a slightly longer project. Just like most landscape compositions this piece was an excellent exercise in foreground, middle ground and background and how to balance these components. In terms of my larger progression as an artist this piece was a great step into color without getting overwhelmed by it and letting it take over the piece.

Autumn in the Mountains

Mountain Peak

This cloudy mountain peak study was a great exploration in depth and contrast. While creating this piece I wanted to clouds and mountain peak to look visually dynamic and dramatic, while also showing a difference between the physically light clouds and the sturdy mountain. I plan on using this reference for a Terra Human painting soon!

Jemez Springs

This piece expresses my appreciation for the beautiful New Mexico scenery. I started this painting out in the environment and it was a real pleasure experiencing all of the sites and sounds of the Jemez National Recreation Area. While painting I was surrounded by young rock climbers and their instructors who were conquering the impressive rock faces with determination and laughter. Painting this piece outdoors strengthened my relationship with nature and inspired me to pursue more outings like this one.

Colorado Winter

*SOLD* This piece expresses my gratitude for the beautiful state that I live in.  Colorado has been a key source of inspiration for much of my work and it somehow always has new beauty to share. The Boulder flatirons in particular always catch my eye as something so incredibly unique and dynamic. I am excited to explore and discover even more unique places in this diverse state.

Relation

*SOLD*This painting is a visual expression of how I view relationships. I really enjoy illustrating the relationship between land and water because in a way it is seamless and sometimes unnoticeable. Yet these very separate entities are complete opposites in their nature and they somehow come together to create beauty and harmony. The stable and consistent hills and mountains and abstracted through the reflections of the ever changing water to create an entirely new visual.

Resolve

*SOLD* This painting represents the concept of letting go. There are many experiences in our lives that we have no control over and the only thing we can control is our attitude. I can be helpful to let go of the things that are out of our control and switch our focus to the things that are in our control. This can help us live our days with purpose and not in fear.

Old Brother

Young Brother and Old Brother were created simultaneously so I started to view the two of them as siblings. Just like human brothers theses paintings were continually learning and growing together but also dealing with mistakes and failures. They influenced each other for better or for worse and their identities are intertwined. Yet as much as these brother influenced each other they bring different types of beauty to the world.

Winter Frost

*SOLD* This painting encapsulates one of my favorite components of winter in Colorado. Being from Maui my first experience with snow was in Colorado Springs when a beautiful morning frost covered everything with soft fluffy snow. This piece aims to convey the soft silence that can be found in a snow-covered landscape. I find that this silence can encourage self reflection and a meditative state of mind.

New World

*SOLD* In my paintings I often draw my inspiration from intangibles such as emotions, concepts and mentalities but I sometimes find it is beneficial to go back to what first drew me into art in the first place. This would be awe inspiring landscapes because they bring me joy and make me think beyond myself and Glacier National Park certainly did this during my summer road trip. When viewing this in person I felt inspired to create a painting that could bring other people joy and reflective thoughts. This piece asks for humility and contemplation from it's viewer. The dynamic physical structures of our world have been in the process of creation for longer than we can comprehend.

Piney Lake

*SOLD* This commissioned painting was meant to highlight the vibrant colors found in a landscape and how they can inspire the viewer.
