The hardest part of living in the Pacific Northwest is also one of the most beautiful parts: the rain, the fog, the clouds, the constant moisture in the air through fall, winter and much of the spring.

Occasionally we get the unique pleasure of being inside a cloud.

In the spring we often get rain and sunshine at the same time, so frequently that people use the term “rainbow season” here. This painting shows sunlight shining through dense fog in the forest.

I painted warm golden sunlight shining through cooler shades of lavender and blue.

These colors give the fresh feeling of cool mist on your face.

The whole painting radiates a shimmering silvery light.

As your eye travels further back into the woods, the trees become more and more hazy, until they disappear into the mist.

The photo that inspired this painting, like my other paintings Earth’s Forest and Sun Through Fog, was taken by my talented friend Devon Mitchell. Thanks to her for letting me use her images as inspiration for my art!
