Painting A Moonlit Cloud

Come relax with me as I paint this moonlit cloud ☁🌙☁ I was out the other night with the doggos, walking them around the yard, and the sky was just stunning with this big fluffy clouds outlined in bright moonlight from the nearly half full waxing moon. It was so magical, but I wasn't sure I could take a photo of it. So I decided the next day to find a good reference online for lighting, and sketch out roughly the cloud that inspired me so the night before.

Painting A French Church

It's been keeping me happy and calm so that other tasks in my daily life aren't as heavy.

Lavender Fields

Happy Sunday! I hope you are doing so very well, taking good care of yourself, and being oh so gentle ❤ This week, I spent a few hours painting this landscape. I put on some lovely, soft French music, sat at my desk in front of the window, and had some help from the kittens (mostly Yen) painting this dreamy Provence scene. It was such a lovely way to escape for a few days as I worked on it, then edited the video. Europe is somewhere I'd love to spend a year or two living in and travelling in the future, especially France. Perhaps it's my French roots? Who knows, but it has always called to me since I was a...
