Lighting Up A Foggy Day

Lighting Up A Foggy Day 8x8 Oil on Linen Panel


 This place in the springtime at the top of Point Dume when the coreopsis are in bloom will require another visit.  I have painted here several times and each time it has been one of those days which lifts your heart and makes you glad to be alive.  On the day when I painted this little study, I wasn't sure the "record" would hold because my time was so limited and it was a foggy day, but it did.

The bright yellow coreopsis flower had just begun to fill the mesa.  They really were "Lighting Up A Foggy Day".

 I wrote all about my adventures on the Point Dume Bluff.

Although, only a little study, and although I really went there to paint the glorious yellow coreopsis, it was the subtle shades on the far peninsula that framed the painting and which made me smile with satisfaction.

I have to agree with you on the peninsula and I love the light in this piece!
