I enjoy painting a skies, especially ones so colorful! They take me to another place!
I will be doing more sunrises now because I have a new place on the other side of Lake Michigan! The weather has been lovely, not very hot. There is nothing like the natural air conditioning of Lake Michigan!
Enjoying painting without a plan. You never know what might happen!

Intuitive Painting is painting without a plan. Letting loose and seeing what happens. I never have painted anything like this before. The name came after the result. I will explore painting like this more.
This was my first time to paint Plein Air on a house boat.
Here are my latest abstract explorations with Acrylic paint, palette knives and 6×6 and the last a 8×8 gallery wrap canvases.

My husband Dave loved to watch the sunset over Lake Michigan. For over 30 years we returned to the lake in the summer, and watched in awe of the dramatic sky and peaceful rhythm of the waves. This time would be the last. The following winter, he passed away just before the pandemic took hold. While sheltering in place, it brought me peace to paint the bold color and fleeting light of time passing, remembering Dave’s life well lived.
