Cloudy Day | 11x14" vertical painting

Cloudy Day | 11x14" vertical painting

Just the cloudiest sky ever… finger painted, mostly, with some brush work and a bit of palette knife action. Early in the summer, I painted outside on my porch, which overlooks a meadow and trees. I captured different parts of this same scene over several days. The day of this painting, it rained during part of the time, and the clouds coated the sky in layers.


Clouds are one of the things I am always tempted to paint, and yet they challenge me. I wanted to fill the painting with the way the clouds looked. This was the first time I used the combination of paintbrushes and my fingers to shape the clouds. I loved the process so much! It felt playful, while also giving me the feeling that I was learning the shapes of each cloud.

Never stop playing!


“Cloudy Day” is an original 11x14” acrylic painting on canvas inspired by the idea that we should give ourselves permission to do nothing sometimes. Living intentionally is important to me and something I strive to do more of, but it doesn’t mean every single minute of life must be planned and structured. This cloudy landscape painting is a gentle reminder to welcome open space each day for rest, spontaneity, and for play, too.

”You only live once, but if you do it right once is enough.” – Mae West
