Early Morning Mist
I caught this image of early morning mist with my zoom lens one morning last week around 7 a.m. The mist rising from the frosty morning and the sunlight hitting the tops of the trees was intriguing to me. I wanted to try to capture the effect in paint. On this beautiful day, I am headed to the Parkway again to record the last of the fall colors of 2010. I will continue to paint these incredible colors well into winter but I do plan to take a few days off. I have a show at WVTF on Friday night Nov. 19th 5-7. Please come if you are anywhere near Roanoke Va. Then I will be leaving for a few days on Saturday morning for a plein air workshop with Ron Boehmer in Lexington, and of course, lots of family fun the following week of Thanksgiving. I am so thankful this year for a completed year of daily painting and for my incredible family who has given me the freedom to accomplish this and for my God who has given me the abilities that I have!
