Needles Overlook During a Storm

Needles Overlook During a Storm

  The Needles Overlook of Canyonlands National Park offers stunning views of the park. Most of the time it’s not too exciting, but go during a thunderstorm and you’re in for a treat. It was amazing and a little exciting watching the lighting in the distance, […]

Cornona, Please!

Cornona, Please!

  Sunset at Corona Arch in Moab, Utah. I have a tendency to complain about where I live. I was born and raised in Moab so I take it for granted. It really is a beautiful place assuming you can claw your way through the crowds […]

Selling Art

Selling Art

  This week I posted a handful of paintings for sale in a local Facebook sales group as well as to my personal page. I’m proud to announce that I’ve sold a painting. While it isn’t my first sale, it is my first sale to […]

Framing Art without Brackets

Framing Art without Brackets

I visited the Halele’a Art Gallery in Kaua’i when my husband and I vacationed there summer 2016, and came across an ingenious way to hold the canvas in the frame. The artist or framer (I don’t know which) used strips of canvas in each corner […]

Fisher Towers Update

Fisher Towers Update

Rock painting. It might be getting easier. A few good days don’t necessarily mean it’s actually getting easier, but it’s enough to lift my spirits and motivate me to actually work on this painting. I need to accentuate the colors more. The furthest cliffs are […]

Painting Over Old Paintings

I’m really unsure what to do with this painting. I started painting it probably 5 years ago and really struggled with it before giving up. It was overly ambitious. I didn’t have the skill to finish it when I started it. I think I’ve improved […]

Pasagshack Beach Sunset #2

You may remember this painting from my posts Current Works in Progress and May Update. It has come a long way since then and taken on a different feeling. While it didn’t come out the way I expected, I like it anyway.

More Progress & The Liebster Award

This is first and foremost a painting blog, so here is this week’s painting update. Try as I might, I just couldn’t get this painting finished. Life has been busy lately and I haven’t had very much time to paint this week. It’s so close! I expect to […]

Current Works in Progress

The last couple weeks have been very busy. The school year ended, family got together, mini vacations happened, and life went on in between. I’ve been trying to sneak painting in when I can, but haven’t made much progress on anything. The above painting started […]

Painted 46 & 2 Times

I was working on this painting on Sunday and … GASP! I repainted the sky. I didn’t want to do this, it just started happening, and then it kept happening. I was completely absorbed in listening to Tool and my hands got away from me. Before I […]
