Foggy Lakeside Sun-Up

Ah .... so good to be home! It seems like the paperwork on my desk as well as meeting obligations are multiplying like proverbial rabbits .... and so I plan my escape by painting quiet, restive scenes. LOL

This image was inspired by a photo reference, and has a bit more contrast in real life. I tried to limit my palette to give this more of a blue/brown/yellow tone to set the mood of early morning - as one might see after camping out on the side of a quiet lake.

Our temperatures are expected to reach close to 100F this weekend, and we've a fairly busy one planned -- and that lake certainly lures me .....

Have a great day!

I love how you've captured the fog -- it really makes me think of a foggy day. I'd love to spend some quiet time at the lake that you've painted!

A terrific accomplishment -- it sure does like like a morning on Lake Eden in Vermont, many many years ago!
We are in the 90's today -- finally getting some summer weather after a pleasantly warm summer cooled by all the rain. Enjoy your painting day.

Lovely mist, peaceful colors... a quiet place. Love the "ground border" (sorry, my English!).
Nice painting.
