Dissolving to MIst

Dissolving to Mist (study), 12 x 12
Mecox Bay, Southampton

More fog - I had great fun with this particular weather pattern! Beginning this painting, I made mental notes about the reflections, the values, and the mist, thinking that the sun would come out and change everything. Instead the mist got thicker and by the time I finished, I couldn't see any of it any more! Painting outside - always a surprise.

Hi Laurel,

I've been on the Atlantic side of Nova Scotia in this fog. It's gorgeous and all consuming (it might not be so great to live in it full time). You've done a lovely job capturing that atmosphere. A perfect painting. Just super.

XOXOXOXOXOBarbara

Laurel, these fog paintings are intriguing... the colours, the shapes and the handling of the sun through mist is exquistely done. r.

Having grown up on L.I. and spent time in the Hamptons I'm really enjoying your new series of paintings. Great work.

I like the little house. Small, but it gives so much to the painting.

I love this one as well. It feels very east coast-y! Your exploration of fog and mist reminds me of the Whistler exhibit we went to last year at the Clark. I found it fascinating, the idea of the thing not pictured...what was obscured. The concept still fascinates me! I love that by the end of your painting session, you had lost the subject altogether.

Love you,
Erin :)
