When mist is introduced into a landscape, it is as if the sky has come down to meet the earth and we are a bit closer to the heavens. It brings with it a peace and calm, leaving the viewer feeling like time is standing still. Reality appears to be altered and another dimension has been added to the scene.
The Mist paintings are single canvas oil paintings that reflect the essence of the photograph within; a photo that includes an element of fog, clouds or morning mist. The recessed photo can be viewed through the soft edged cut out in the outer canvas layer.
Mist is both tangible and allusive. It seems to conceal yet hold the secrets that lie behind the veil.
