Before the Breeze 27 | Sep

Finishing up a new 36 x 36 in. painting of one of my favorite places this
week, NY's Adirondack mountains. I just have to wrap my head around that
reflection, add a few floating bubbles and it's done.


Carolina Wren 27 | Jul

I hope everyone into birds can get a visit from one of these little guys.
Happy to report that we had one at our feeder in NY all winter long. Just
about done with this little 6 x 8 in. painting of one posed by an estuary.


A dark idol 06 | Jul

One more glaze layer and this new spooky painting will be complete. I
never know what's going on in these houses, but something to do with the
dark arts would be a good guess. "...silence lay steadily against the
wood and stone of Hill House, and whatever walked there, walked alone.” -

Ephemera 27 | Jun

Ever notice how it's just after a storm, or just before some weather that
nature gets almost absurdly beautiful? I'm almost done with perhaps that
old foolish task of tacking a whack at imitating it with this painting.

The First 08 | Jun

I've begun work for the November show, I know that there should be some
sort of law against painting autumn in the spring...but I enjoyed it. Many
more to come of "fleeting" scenes, be it nostalgic type images, glowing
light, or very temporary moments in nature. In fewer words, the delicate
parts of life. - Brett

In progress detail 09 | Apr

There are a few more feet of this at least. - Brett

Final Stretch 06 | Apr

Putting the reference away and just painting is where the fun begins.
Excited to have this one included in the upcoming "Epic" show when finished.

Cumulus 25 | Mar

Some mornings, you get the feeling that nature herself was dreaming in the
night and has left some beautiful and abstract manifestation for us to
ponder before the hard shadows of the afternoon sun trains our brains to
see order and absolutes. Waist deep in a new 2 x 4 ft painting for

Reflections 25 | Nov

Here is a new one that is headed to the gallery, it's called "Above and
Below" and features many reflections which were a fun challenge to paint.


Winter Storm 12 | Nov

I've finally finished the background on a new 3 x 4 ft painting of a winter
storm in the mountains. While working on this, I've been remembering
stories such as the "Dyatlov Pass" mystery in Russia, the terrible fate of
the Donner Party and my own memories of winters in Colorado. In the high
country, there is an eerie silence when the wind stops and the snow falls
steadily, sometimes you could hear an "unkindness" of ravens that would
break it, but usually nothing more than the tiny pecking of a bird doing
it's best to survive. When encountering wild life--no matter the size, we
do well to remember all they have made it through to greet us. That calls
for respect and reverence, because the "be here now" notion that is warn
like a badge on the sleeve of many 21st century spiritualists is the only
m.o. they have ever known. Or in the words of D.H. Lawrence, you could
"miss your chance with one of the lords of life".
