Mist and Fog: Guest Post by Colleen



Handpicked on Etsy by Colleen of KCRlehrstudio
Mistfully Speaking...What is the difference between mist and fog? I know; the actual definition is the distance of visibility, but what is it to an artist? It is sensation, color, mood, tone - all the elements of true inspiration. In the mind of an artist, every natural phenomenon is transformed into a work of art. After spending most of the summer in Arizona and then returning to Pennsylvania, I realized that even though Arizona had some rain; I never saw mist or fog. This morning is a truly mistful (my word) day and the colors are so softly muted, yet still delightful. I decided to see how our fellow ETSIAN artists may have been inspired by this natural event. Please check out these works and others in their shops. I hope a closer look will inspire you. Prices range from $6.00 to $450.00.
Have a great day. Colleen of kcrlehrstudio.etsy.com

Having just joined this lounge, I am intrigued by the vision of bringing together works created by different artists in differing mediums with the common motif. This grouping as a collective collage effectively heightens the individual as well as creating a communal piece!
