Does fog inspire you?

Our summer house has been bathed in fog for at least a week. Not one ounce of sun to be seen but there's lots of rain.  One would think that being wrapped in a cocoon would  provide just the right atmosphere for creating.  Nothing could be further than the truth for me.  I've been waiting for inspiration to strike for four days, but I  am less inclined to create with each passing  day.  Obviously the weather affects how I create.  Not feeling inspired, I decided to spend time making new image transfers for my next interior/exterior landscape.  I'm glad to report that went very well and I'm ready to roll when I return.  That's right, I  escaped it all and made the three hour journey back to the city where I at least have a computer.

Other artists are very inspired by fog as you can see....




 



Can you identify the artists?
Do you see any similarities?

I can't identify any of them, but I am surprised (a lot!) by how strongly yellow is a part of each of them, a color I never associate with fog.

You'd have a bad time of it in San Francisco in the summer, Margaret ;-)

Great shot Sheerwood. I know this type of scene only too well. I sometimes joke that it's fog that give that glowing complexion many Newfoundlanders have.

Make that gives... in the previous post.

I like fog when it's not too cold! The way it changes the sound is cool too. I'm with Sherwood, lots of yellow there when I think grey... or grey brown at a pinch.

Living just up the hill from the ocean I often watch the fog rolling into my neighbourhood. Fog inspires me to go out in it to take photos. I love the sound of the fog horns and the eery way fog softens the landscape. It's cloudy and dreary on this side of the country today.

I recognize some Monets and maybe a Turner? I'm a photographer, and I am DEFINITELY inspired by mist and fog. So much so that my husband said one day, "Take pictures of something else besides fog." I just laughed knowing that I won't stop until something inside myself tells me to.
