This painting comes from the fields in West Michigan where I grew up, and where I often visit. That early spring green, the trees still bare.

Another painting inspired by a recent stay at the Green Lake cottage, and the magnificent sky paintings of Robert Roth.

Come and see me at the Summer Art Fair in Glenview this weekend! This nest painting, based on a photo by Savannah Hagey, will be up for auction to benefit the Youth Art Fair.

After an amazing family vacation I am catching up on projects and getting ready for this weekend’s Glenview Art League Summer Art Fair! I’ll be donating a small painting to the silent auction, which benefits the Youth Art Fair, so be sure to attend if you can. The painting above is inspired by our recent stay at the cottage on Green Lake in Michigan. I have a few more to post before the show. I’ll be putting some of these in my etsy shop next week.

Plein Air: Library

I set up a new, diy plein air painting easel by the library a few evenings ago and made this small sketch. I like the color of the warm evening light on the brick.

I have a couple events coming up! I’ll be at the Glenview Art League’s Summer Art Fair on July 30 and 31. Also, I’ll have a painting the Glenview Art League’s Member Show at the Bookmarket starting on the fifth. There will be a reception on July 22nd, but unfortunately I’ll be out of town then.

A wave, a drift of flowers, weeds, lush and brittle. A gift, a wall, a path, a dead end.

Another painting of the sky over the ocean, inspired by a recent cruise to the Bahamas. A rainbow of early light moves through the clouds and reflects in the dark water.

Oil Painting: Backlit Peonies

BacklitPeonies

This small painting just got a few final brushstrokes that sent it from “hmm” to “complete.” More beautiful blooms from my good neighbor. We went to the Old Town and Wells Street art fairs in Chicago today – so much beautiful art! I am blown away. I especially loved Signe and Genna Grushovenko’s paintings, the mixed media work of Ronna Katz, and Katie Musolff’s watercolors.

I also just finished watching James Gurney’s Gouache in the Wild video. It was so good, an I hope to tune up my gouache outdoor sketching skills in the coming days and weeks.
