Mist off the Water– Lake Los Carneros

18×24″ oil on canvas– When the morning sun hits the surface of the cold lake little whispy clouds evaporate over the water. It is a little micro version of fog and clouds forming on the ocean. At this point I’m completely making this up, but imagine how these little lake weather systems pile up at the base of the tules and have micro rain storms that only the smallest bugs are short enough to experience, with really tiny lightening not much bigger than the spark when you rub your feet on the carpet and touch a doorknob.
