Living along the coast near Santa Barbara provides ample opportunity for the occurrence of Fog. One evening I went out to paint and the fog that was in was reminiscent of that which influence Whistler. There is something magical about the first moments when the moon rises and peeks it's face out from behind the clouds or mountains. Anyway, the Moon springing up from the clouds gave me inspiration and hope; that fog in itself is merely a temporary veil between the unknown and enlightenment.
