Foggy Lake

Daily Practice

Journal

 

Ever have one of those weekends when you have the time but just can't paint worth a darn ....! Dang, I really HATE those .. Hope the week improves! LOL

I've painted this scene before, but thought I'd try it again using different brushes. I love painting fog and with our constantly changing weather, it's what I see most mornings ... that bit of cloud sitting on the horizon, trees poking through it like wisps of green spears, the moisture obscuring sight and sound ... there's a bit of dreamlike quality to those mornings, as though the full thrust of reality is being held, like a breath.

 

This is the last week of classes. I'll be driving back and forth to work this week (a 3-4 hour commute) while my son is having his surgery. There'll be precious little time to sketch ... though I hope to get in my daily practice in some way. But 'net time will certainly be curtailed until Friday.

 

We're in for more rain again ... do wish it were snow!

 

Have a great week!
