Current Bruce Park Paintings, Auctions and Exhibitions

  • Yellowstone National Park

    It has been a couple years in the making, but I finally have my Yellowstone greeting card line for sale in Yellowstone National Park!   A pack of five cards specifically tailored for the Park. They are reproductions of my original oil paintings from my spirit animal series.

    "My intention with the spirit animal series of paintings goes beyond my love for painting animals. I wanted to present these animals in an engaging intimate format where the eyes are the focal point, a view to the seat of the animal's spirit rather then a traditional approach to the genre of wildlife painting."

    On the back of each card you will find interesting informational facts about that animal as well as guidance of what  each animal represents as a spirit guide. Enjoy!

  • Almost Spring

    It's March, the temperatures are slowly warming and I am so over shoveling snow! Although very grateful for the abundant show pack, spring flowers can't come quick enough.

    "Foothill Flowers" is one of my all time favorite pastel paintings. Spring in Montana has such intense saturated colors that are a challenge to paint. The fresh, alive hues can come off acrid in a painting, suffocating the beauty of spring. I felt I achieved a harmonious balance in this painting, successfully capturing a lush hillside and the cool soft clouds that are indicative to spring skies.

    Foothill Flowers is 20" x 34" pastel on paper.

  • Yellowstone Art Museum 2014 Annual Art Auction

     

    I am delighted to have a pastel painting in the live auction and the annual Yellowstone Art Museum Art Auction "Art Auction 46", this event will be held on March 1, 2014.

    "Lamar Valley Storm" is a 30" x 40" pastel painting from the Lamar Valley located in Yellowstone National Park. This is a dynamic pastel exhibiting the uniqueness of the medium through the use of many layers of color. I am always surprised how the subtle translucent color layers create a very vibrant relationship that translates the beauty of the light.

    The Yellowstone Art Museum is located at 401 N 27th St, Billings, Mt 59101. You can also visit their website auction page.

     

  • Pine Shadows-Montana Summer

    This is an original plein air oil painting done in August 2013. It was a hot summer morning with bright light and rich color that made for cool shadows and warm direct light. Notice that I am standing in the shadow otherwise I would be drenched with sweat!

    This is an 8" x 8" oil on canvas panel that is varnished and ready to place in a frame.

  • Summer Shadows

    The snow is almost all melted in the surrounding mountains, but, the fields are still green and the grasses are starting to ripen. I love it when you get a cool summer breeze with large white puffy clouds casting shadows as they float through the Gallatin Valley.

    This pastel painting "Summer Shadows" is 30" x 40".
