Robert Spellman watercolor of Mountain Water artists refuge in fog.

A small watercolor of fog in the mountains of southern Colorado. Fog here is actually being in the clouds, a condition I love. The word brume means mist or fog. This is a small and very quick watercolor. Sometimes these things look better on a screen, perhaps because the medium of watercolor is transparent; a screen lit from behind complements the effect. The music piece below is also called Brume.

Music of the Moment

This music came together in May of 2020 as the pandemic was getting really serious. The title Brume means cloud or mist. The pandemic came in as all pandemics do, like a darkening cloud. I suppose the piece is a bit dreary but it's not without a bit of dark humor.

I add one of these compositional sketches with each Moonblog entry on the new and full moon. I also have a page with more of this musical work in progress. Go here for a listen.
