This past fall we had the most beautiful sunsets, night after night.  It really inspired me to paint clouds and sunsets.

During an blog event Marla Laubisch coordinated, I joined up with 8 other artists to do demos of our work.  I thought I would share my technique on how I paint clouds:

 

 

I get so much inspiration and learn so much by watching other artists paint, that I am really looking forward to seeing all the artist’s demos. Be sure to visit the other artists participating in the event, so you don’t miss a thing!

Sunsets and Snow

Today was the first day that I spent a full day in my studio in weeks.

I missed it.  Terribly!

When I went to the studio this morning, it was dark (5:30 am), cold, and icy and snowy outside.  I was thinking about what to paint today.  Yesterday, my husband sent me copies of pictures we took during one of our evening walks this past fall.

These two pictures were taken on the same evening, about ten minutes apart.

We had such a glorious fall.  The skies were clear, and each evening the sunsets were breathtaking.

Since I woke up to a cold, snowy day…I thought I would step back a bit and capture what the last season gave me!

Beautiful Sunsets!!
