Fog on the Reservoir

Fog on the Reservoir
Oil on canvas, 10x10, $100

This interestingly warm November has made for some spectacular mornings! Cool air meets warm water, and fog is the result.

I've been busy with work, with house stuff, with yard stuff, with family stuff, and my painting schedule has taken a little beating. But when I have the chance, it feels like a gift, and so I am going with the flow, and not upbraiding myself for my lower production.

Yesterday, I painted with the remarkably talented and very fun Ronet Noe, outside Center Framing & Art. Ronet brought reindeer antler headbands for us both, and silvery garland. She wore a belt of jingle bells, and I brought an ipod full of Christmas carols, and we talked and laughed and painted and had a great time!

It does not look like winter, it does not feel like Christmas, we do not have a tree (we do have our palm tree and flamingo, which is our regular Christmas tree, but we haven't put it up yet) - but I am feeling more like Christmas than I have in years. And it feels good.

When you're thinking of presents, please think of giving a painting - one of mine, one of someone else's - if you can give a gift of local art, how fabulous would that be?

Thanks, reub! I really like this one, too. I have some issues with fog, and am always working to improve. I'm always happy when a fog piece comes out looking, well, foggy!
