“Indiana Overlook” 9×12”
This Fall I visited Indiana.
“Whitewater River” 8×10”
The light changed during the time I was painting this one, from partly sunny to cloudy. I was standing on sand bars, but as I painted I kept adding more white water.

It was cloudy and still but what we see is just a starting point. Sometimes unexpected result come from Plein Air painting. This photo shows how I embellished the scene. Mainly I added a field beyond the horizon for more interest, more elements that are simplified in the foreground. I waited for a sky I wanted to paint, I normally do that first.
With all the rain we’ve has lately, Thunderheads are on the rise. With this one I decided to try some oils again. I will do a bigger one in the future. 6×8” oil on Canvas
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.
8”x10” Acrylic on canvas.
On a cool dreary day, I painted along the shore of the river.
I loved the new animated film “Loving Vincent,” which was hand painted by 100 artists in the Van Gogh style. The film inspired me to see how good, a digital oil painting effect I could get on my IPad Pro. I used the KDAN animation program, to sketch the animation, and painted the individual frames in a paint program, Art Set Pro. Background is repeated every 4 frames. It was worth the extra effort to use the paint program.
