I enjoy painting a skies, especially ones so colorful! They take me to another place!
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.

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.

“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.
8”x10” Acrylic on canvas.
On a cool dreary day, I painted along the shore of the river.
These clouds were a bit more complexed formation than the clouds I tend to emulate. I needed to add fresh paint to my palette, therefore it wasn’t as thick as the last painting. I need to start opening my palette a couple hours early for the fresh Golden Open Acrylics. Strange isn’t it! Although with the smaller clouds it wasn’t such a bad idea to have thinner paint. 5×7″ canvas board.
