Abiquiu Lake Sunset

studio 18 art

acrylic on canvas…7×14 inches

I finished this painting last week and love it’s simplicity, both in composition and colorway. Sometimes I feel the image so strongly that it comes alive through my brush…this one did. The clouds are disapating as the storm passes with just one remnant left…a bit of light virga far beyond the horizon. Deep blue and violet shadows edge the lake as the orange glow of the sun reflects off its surface. Can you tell I really like this painting????

Larger than a CEO, but still original and affordable…available here…..

Parking Lot Winter Tree

Let's Paint Nature!

winter tree drawing

Sometimes you just don’t want to get out of the car. Maybe it’s cold, rainy, or maybe you just feel tired and the thought of hiking with art supplies doesn’t seem appealing. It’s okay to sketch from the car.

traveling art supplies

That’s what I did the other day. Originally, I was just going to make a nice drawing and leave it at that, but at the last minute pulled out the watercolor field kit. These supplies I keep in the glove compartment in my car so that I have them where ever I go.

to color? or not to color?

After I painted the tree with watercolors, I doubted my decision to do so…should I have left it alone? With or without color, it was a great exercise. And it quelled my desire for creative time.

Book Update

Inspired Creativity

I’m trying to put out a couple of illustrations a week for my book on back country canoeing and kayaking and so far I have 50 that I’m happy with. I’m not sure how many illustrations I’m going to need and I’m sure some of them will not get included in the book for one reason or another so my goal is to have a whole slew to choose from.

As I work on the small watercolour paintings, I am thinking about what I want the book to look like as far as layout. I know I want lots of illustrations and when I began, I thought I wouldn’t have a lot of text. What’s happening is that my mind goes back to the trips we’ve done and I end up including things I wasn’t planning on including. So there is a whole lot more text than I had anticipated…

Watching landscape painting

cindy moon mckee

If at first I don’t succeed…at painting a landscape, maybe the thousandth attempt will be good. I’ve been watching the videos of Stuart Davies, a tonalism landscape painter (nowadays) and trying to soak up some techniques. Today, I tried an afternoon landscape:

works and descriptions


The blue sea world in the flower fields of the hilly soil complex is Drawn with dark watercolor mixed with dark, complex colors, various backgrounds to the foreground in various imaginary details. It looks very charming. I like to mix colors on the mountain green and red in another way. The sea is mixed with a little blue and white. Adjacent to a field of flowers, various plants, it looks friendly, the world is beautiful, dreams, imagination, peace, good atmosphere, I hope you all will experience, walk and consider for yourself. Welcome to the Friday afternoon weekend. Thank you.
