Intuitive Painting

Fall Debris 12”x16” Acrylic on paper

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.

While I Stayed Home! Part 1

While “Sheltering in Place” I felt like venturing into a more playful state of painting! I got out my palette knives and loaded my palette, and mixed my favorite colors, and spread paint like frosting to my heart’s content!

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

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.

I went to our Nature Park to do a little plein air watercolor painting. I wanted to steak out the locations for our Frost Fest Plein Air Outing this weekend. I will probably do an acrylic painting on Saturday. It will be nice this weekend too, but hopefully the snow won’t be all melted.
