As a visual artist, I have increasingly leaned into the soft pattern and light created by mist, fog and haze. As a woman growing in age and perspective it feels SO damn right. These works express the wisdom found in age, that we know much, but nothing at all. The sharp youthful edges of black and white fade into the truth and loveliness of grey. And what emerges is a release, my letting go. For the the only certainty is uncertainty, on a horizon which lies beyond, in the mist and fog.
Who believe in misty ways.
Everything is lovely,
In misty morning glaze.
I like misty water,
I like fog and haze
