Foggy Winter Sunrise

9" x 12" Watercolor
Arches 140#CP

The weather continues to see-saw and the last few days have been unseasonably warm ... again in the mid 60s ... causing a foggy, wet, humid start to the day. I'm not too sad to experience warm weather since I am horribly cold-natured - but I do miss a bit of more seasonable winter temperatures and snow to somehow ready the mood for Christmas.

It's been a busy time for us ... Brayden is getting used to being at home and this week, his brother and sister are off from school - so a bit more adjusting. Holiday preparations are in full swing and we're dashing around for last-minute gifts and ideas, food items, wrapping and the like. In between times, I return to the art table for some 'normalcy' and a bit of relaxation. This painting was done as an experiment in technique as well as a tribute to the fog and warm winter weather.

I finally managed a walk yesterday and the listened to frogs croaking from puddles that remained from two days of rain .... seems so unusual to hear them in December ....

Hope your week is wonderful! Christmas Countdown!

Ooh, this is really emotionally evocative -- like a scene one might see in a movie. I love the misty look and the shadows and the reflections -- I love it all. Amazing painting Lin -- the colors -- the shapes -- WOW.

Big hugs,
