That's the title of my latest painting, finished (I think) today.
Once again a view of Sinclair Inlet, which is a part of the Puget Sound.
My town, Port Orchard, runs along the south side of Sinclair Inlet. The US Navy Base in Bremerton is across the way.
On sunny days the aircraft carriers are huge and looming. In the fog, they take on a different character.
I took several reference shots a about a week ago on a densely foggy morning.
We were actually on our way to Port Townsend for some ginger ice cream and a walk through that beautiful Victorian waterfront town, with a stop planned for the way home to visit Shine Tidelands State Park on the Hood Canal.
The foggy views that morning before we had even gotten out of our own little town were the best pictures of the day.
I took several reference shots.
On the other hand, the park with the great name (Shine Tidelands- I mean, come on! ) was really kind of a bust.
The dirt road in was horribly pitted and rutted. There was nothing shiny, and the waterfront area was miniscule.
The views were all pretty much obscured by the Hood Canal Bridge, which is not particularly beautiful.
This is the first of the foggy local views to be made into a painting. There are two more planned.
