When Will I See You Again?

Last Wednesday it was extremely foggy in Saskatoon, so as soon as I dropped the boys off at school in the morning I went to the riverbank and took lots of photos. It was beautiful. Dreamy. Peaceful. As I painted I imagined that the trees missed their perfect view of downtown and then the lyric "When Will I See You Again?" came along in the Adele song ("Don't You Remember") I was listening to and I knew that had to be the title.

Thanks Kim, wish you could have seen the day in person... it was lovely. This painting is a small attempt to capture the what I felt in those surroundings.

Love the foggy mood. I think the trees liked it too. They feel lucky that you are painting them.

Hi Barbara,

I feel lucky I get to paint trees... in fact I took lots of tree pictures that morning, too. I've got a few ideas swirling around in my head.

Sweet! You captured the essence of a foggy day beautifully. I really like that it's the reflection of downtown that caused me to notice downtown. Great job, Nicki!

Hi Don,

It was a really cool effect that morning. The reflection of downtown was stronger than the actual physical presence of the buildings through the fog.

Fun.

I particularly love this one, Nicki - but I'd also like to see your reds and magentas!!!

(I've found that as I've got older, I've moved away from greens and blues to warmer, bolder colours without meaning to . . . it's just happened that way)

Hi Judy,

How are you? So nice to see a comment from you. Happy belated New Year!

I'm pleased you like this and I will show an attempt at reds and magentas when a worthy one occurs!
