Abstractions at Groundswell Gallery




My three untitled small abstractions (above) can be seen at Groundswell Gallery as part of the "Provisional" group show for just a few more days before the new exhibition opens at the beginning of March.

Hare in the Snow

Photo and video by me - snowshoe hare in the fresh Rocky Mountain National Park snow - discovered while snowshoeing in the park yesterday.

and here's a grainy video of some coyotes playing in the park as well:

Wednesday Wind-down



Great, somewhat eerie soundtrack-style instrumental tracks - the description given says, "An exercise in epic introspection."



 I'll follow that up with the very pleasant neo-classical official soundtrack to the norwegian documentary "Nordfor Solen".

Remember - you can stream most bandamp releases in their entirety -so give these a listen and enjoy your Wednesday wind-down.

Wednesday Wind-down



From the artist; "Sun Showers is equal parts relaxation & reflection - the sounds of a warm day spent on the porch, washed in a light rain. For this release, Matthew collected a handful of field recordings - a large wind chime found at the local gardening store, some bird songs from his front yard, and a brief rain shower that eased in one afternoon - and then processed each one to create new, unique texture. Acoustic guitar, keys, and a subtle jazz drum sample were also used to compose the Sun Shower soundscape"



For something a little less open - and a bit more composed, check out Emmalee Crane's "Formantine" album. Whereas the Barlow album above is quiet and private, "Formantine" is big and open. Crane uses a mix of horns and electronic textures to layer up a very rich, complex sound.

Two Openings This Weekend

 I will be showing some abstraction at Denver's Groundswell gallery among some very talented company and at Eastern Oregon University - the Nightingale Gallery will have three of my small paintings in a show called, "Quietude" opening Friday February 8th from 6-8 pm.

One of the works being shown in Oregon is this 18x24" painting of mine called, "Light through a Monastery Window".

Somewhere to Disappear


You can buy the download of Alec Soth's excellent documentary "Somewhere to Disappear" for just one dollar at filmDIY. Highly recommended.

Wednesay Wind-down



Mellow sampled music.



A nice lo-fi 50s throwback -something you might expect to hear in a David Lynch film.
