PleiadesTriptych2

A trio of night sky panels, my biggest paintings yet (center panel is 72 by 42 inches), just set off cross-country to it’s new home. Exciting day! Orion on the left, Pleiades in the center, and Cassiopeia to the right. I loved the challenge and experience this commissioned project presented. Heart felt thanks to my patrons!

I woke early to catch the sunrise, setting up my easel and oil paints in almost full darkness. A crescent moon with one bright and one dimmer star (Venus and Regulus, I think?) hung over a pale horizon, reflected in the lake.

Here is a little map of the sky I looked up on skyandtelescope.com after I got home, to figure out what I was seeing.

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.
