Coastal Fog, Plein Air

The fog comes 
on little cat feet.

It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
-Carl Sandburg

I love Sandburg's image of the still, quietness of a foggy day. Last week when I went out to paint this - difference in appearance to my previous days on the marsh out at Barn Island were quite interesting. The colors do go rather 'soft' and grayed. I've begun a large (30"x36") studio painting from one of the previous studies, still in the middle of that!
