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.

Dave’s Last Sunset

“Dave’s Last Sunset” 18 x24” Acrylic on stretched canvas

Accepted to the McCullough Hyde Healing Arts Exhibit

Artist Statement

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.
