"Misty Morning"

9x12" Acrylic on canvas panel
If you visit Beason Park (Columbus, TX) early in the morning, you might get lucky and see the Colorado River with a thick fog. It was so thick when I painted it, the acrylics that normally dry within a minute after brushing it on had problems with being too wet and dripping!  That was a challenge.  I think this really caught the misty feel with the barely noticeable house in the distance across the river.  This placed third in the plein air competition at the Columbus Folk Fest 2012.
