"Blue Smokies" Oil Painting

12x48, Oil on Canvas
I used some of my Birthday money on some new canvases. They are very long!  I have had such fun thinking of different ways to use them.  This was my first idea.  I love the way that mist falls to the lowest part of the land.  Since it is heavy with moisture it tends to do that.  I also love the way that color is distilled by moisture to where on the farthest valley all you see is a faint distant purple blue ridge line.
If any of you have been to the Great Smokey Mountains you know what "Smokey" means.  It's that incredible moisture that distills the valleys and ridges. Like little rivers of cloud. A soft mystery to the land.
