7 Skies to Wow Your Inner Color Genie [Photos]

All you have to do is look up! The sky's the limit when it comes to color inspiration

7 of my favorite sunset paintings are inspired by colorful skies near my home in Virginia. Start here for color inspiration.

King's Creek
COLOR INSPIRATION

King's Creek on the York River

King's Creek is a well-known vista on the York River. Just off the Colonial Parkway, this stunning view of King's Creek took my breath away. I just HAD to paint it!  SHOP THIS ART>

Moon Rising
COLOR INSPIRATION

Bethel Beach Sanctuary on the Chesapeake

Bethel Beach Sanctuary in Mathews County, Virginia is my FAVORITE place to paint. Sunrise, sunset, it's all stunning. This moonrising piece is for the dreamers.  SHOP THIS ART>

Silver Lining
COLOR INSPIRATION

Twilight on My Mind

If Moon Rising is for dreamers, Silver Lining is for romantics. If I wasn't a romantic, I'd never be able to paint. This twilight sunset fills my soul with purple, vermilion, and gold.  SHOP THIS ART>

Oyster & Pearl
COLOR INSPIRATION

Oyster & Pearl

Years ago I saw these two oystermen raking the river botton at sunset. It was too dark to paint them on the spot. But the vision of them etched itself into my mind.   SHOP THIS ART>

River Sentinels
COLOR INSPIRATION

River Sentinels

I have always been fascinated by clouds. I AM a Gemini, after all! So that's why the painting has those sentinels perched along the edge of the river ~ to keep me from drifting away!   SHOP THIS ART>

Silver Lining II
COLOR INSPIRATION

en Plein Air

This painting in one of the largest I have painted en plein air. Taking a large canvas out into the wind, it must be a calm day. This one I painted at Bethel Beach Sanctuary in Mathews County, Virginia. Standing out on that spectacular stretch of marsh, I feel like I can fly!    SHOP THIS ART>

September Chase
COLOR INSPIRATION

Good Memories

This painting captures the feelings I have for my dad. Dad and I walked everywhere.  This walk on the beach, like many at Cape Cod, are more about feelings of love and admiration, than a specific physical place. It's really a meeting of spirits. Hence the title, September Chase.  SHOP THIS ART>
