In 2007, I began blogging. It is exciting to create consistently, sell my work around the world, and meet wonderful friends! I paint, teach, write, am a lover of nature, family and friends. This is where I post my latest studio work with comments about my process, tips about my techniques, and my thoughts on how faith, art, and life converge. Book mark me and visit again soon!

Finally, finished! This took a little while, mostly because of the many other activities that are going on this month with work and family. But, I'm happy with the outcome. The clouds took many layers of glazing to achieve the colors and billowy appearance of the thunderhead. The reference photo was actually taken this summer after having driven through the storm. It was very intense, but quite beautiful as well. This is fairly typical summer weather on the south side of Lake Michigan! We missed the accompanying tornado by about 6 miles.
