Impressionist, with nearly all soft and loose edges….

just like the morning haze.

So long ago.

Forest Morning Haze

This quick, loose watercolor study was painted from sheer memory.

Done in under 10 minutes, there was no laboring or fussing about.

Just expressing that time –  keeping it simple.


I no longer have the forest and mountain photographs of all the time we spent in the wilderness.

But I think my memory, serves me well enough to convey those Beautiful Days. That chapter.




When the children were little, in the summers, we used to go driving, camping, hiking, fishing all the time.

I’d pack a picnic lunch for the kids and drive to the lake or river.  It was a delightful ‘gourmet’ picnic of cheese and crackers,  maybe an apple!

Time well spent.


Best investment I could have made.





I loved the mountains, the clear crisp streams running through the forests.

And that hazy morning light, falling upon the distant hills casting such a lovely shade of misty blue.

Perhaps, you might like it too ….
