Lake Michigan Sunset

00C5FBBB-9849-4D1C-8911-10960ECF16DE

I saw a fabulous sunset this summer on our trip to Michigan. I had to paint it! I’ve rarely painted anything like this. I want to paint a bigger one, this one is 9×12” on canvas board. I sold the painting on Facebook to an old friend who grew up appreciating the Lake Michigan Sunset.

Working on Trees

In my new Cincinnati environment there are more trees. Therefore this winter I’m studying trees. Here is the first study, it’s from a local park. 9×12” Canvas Board

What I Did Last Summer Part 3

Just before I moved, I painted a 6×6” canvas for the BAC Fundraiser.

I went to one last meet up with “The Basement Painters” at the BAC in the newly renovated building. They have a wonderful new workspace with great company.

Here’s where the 6×6 paintings hung. It’s a very successful event.

What I Did Last Summer Part 2

I went an Artist Retreat at Pointer’s Ridge in late June. We painted in Plein Air along the Big Sioux River. 8×10” Acrylic on Canvas Board.

I did a portrait of an old Dutch Elm stump, and had some fun with it! 9×12” Acrylic on Canvas Board.

Here is the quaint little A-frame we stayed in.

Mariemont Plein Air Outing

This weekend I went to my first Cincinnati Paint Out.

The setting was a historic German Town sponsored by the Woman’s Art Club. This group was founded in 1892, originally because the Cincinnati Art Club excluded Woman. Today neither club excludes genders.


I chose to paint at the Mariemont Concourse, which overlooks the Ohio River Valley. I started early in the day, and finished in 3 hours, fortunately before the heat of the afternoon.


It was a great experience!


There were about 60 artists attending, who were friendly and welcoming.


Here I am with my painting that SOLD.
