Day 23 ~ Finding a Treasure

treasure 28″ x 8″ oil on canvas

I’m tired and bleary-eyed. One painting a day is really stretching it, but two is just a little too much for me. I need to work on this one a little more, but I can’t do it tonight…


Day 22 ~ Peaceful Lake Michigan

Lake Michigan16″ x  20″ oil on canvas


I have lived near some of the most beautiful ocean beaches for the first 30 years of my life…I love the beach, but I was stunned at the beauty of Lake Michigan! It was absolutely gorgeous! On the day we were there, the sun was shining and the sky  was  glowing a beautiful azure blue…

I decided to get a larger canvas out today and my palette knife. So this painting is done entirely with lots of gobs of paint and a palette knife. For those of you who have ever textured a wall, that is what I felt like I was doing. But it was fun to move the thick paint around on the canvas.

My daughter came downstairs and said, “Mom, I just love this, it’s so peaceful…” I love that she loves it. Hence the name… 🙂

Price includes a contemporary illusion frame.
