"Misty" by Susie Morrell

Feeling nostalgic and abstract as our family gathers for a memorial campfire at one of the places my dad loved most and worked so hard to preserve as a family retreat.  It's been almost a year since his passing and we still can't believe he will not be there to greet us.  He and my mom share a love for music particularly the sounds from the 50's.  One of their favorites was "Misty" a jazz standard written by Erroll Garner which became a signature song of Jonny Mathis.  As I listened to the song, cool colors of blues and greens developed on my palette.  No one image can memorialize his memory so I mixed all the shades of the cool lake and woodlands that surround it.  You can listen to "Misty" as sung by Jonny Mathis by clicking here while you view my painting.  Hug your dad if he is close by or drop him a note of appreciation and love.  I sure wish I could just one more time.....
