Blue Skies Inspiration

We've been experiencing a very early spring here on Mackinac, with all the plants responding to the warmth of the sun coming down from bright blue skies.

To celebrate those incredible skies, here is some work from some fabulous Etsy artists - enjoy!

We start with "Away We Go" from aliherrma, an encaustic piece composed of paper collage and seed pods.

Next an original oil form ashleywhitejacobsen, an incredible representation of clouds and sky.

Wearable art, a hand painted silk crepe scarf - can't you almost see the wind blow? This piece is available from CFCameron.

"Sapphire Sky with Birch Forest", a lovely print of an original pen and ink illustration created by tamaragarvey.

Greenluck33 has an original acrylic of a just starting to leaf out tree in silhouette - just beautiful!

And to finish, a trio of porcelain bottles glazed in vanilla and robin eggs blue, from dbabcock.

Just as blue skies need at least a view clouds to give some contrast, all of these artists have added contrast in a variety of techniques to complement their beautiful work - please check out their shops to see more!


  1. It was so fun to stay at the Grand Hotel on Mackinaw Island when we lived in Michigan. I envy you your location! Thanks for including my vase trio in your blue sky story!

  2. Oh, thank you so much for the feature! You found some beautiful pieces; I especially love that encaustic piece.

  3. Gorgeous photos- lovely choices, I am so into red most of the time, that interestingly enough I find myself looking at lots of blue photos, pictures, paintings, visuals of any kind lately.
