Just miss you in the mist

 Fog in the woods

I am working on a sustained portrait and it's not
ready for a first viewing.  I will show it to you
when it's ready to be a work in progress.
Today is Monday, and it's been a crazy long work
day at school for me.  But driving to and from
school today was incredibly beautiful.  The
roads were shiny with rain, and closer to school
a thick fog blanketed the fields, and filled the
woods with gauzy grey.  I told Steven how
gorgeous it was and he asked ,"wouldn't a famous
artist like Georgia O'Keefe, or A.Y. Jackson
make a sketch?"  So I did -- on my
iPad.  Paintings will be here soon.  I just missed you
and thought I'd share the impression of "mist"
or in this case, very thick fog.

Have an  enjoying-the-warm-mist day.

And now a famous artist like Barbara Muir has made a sketch of this mysterious scene. Clever Steven to encourage you! Lovely.

Hi Nicki,

You are so sweet. I pulled it out of my brain, but probably should have had my camera.

Your work is awesome.

Missing you.

XO Barbara

Oh, my, your brain works just fine! I love your iPad drawings. Lovely. So glad you are using it for recall.

Way cool...

Hi Marcia,

Thanks I hope you're right. The image was just so vivid in my mind. Lately I seem to see little scenes. But I wish I could give you the whole picture. It was one of those rare fluke weather days. Awesome.

Love,

Barbara

Hi Melinda,

I am trying to keep myself away from the iPad, but it's seductive because it's like clean kindergarten painting, with way more colours. Yum.

Love your work.
