    Just the other day Milwaukee was under a “Dense Fog Advisory”, with visibility low and driving conditions dangerous. Located on the shores of Lake Michigan, this is not an unusual occurrence. But there is something about the city on a foggy night that is mysterious and compelling. Ordinary landmarks ominously loom out of the fog and every light has a halo, sounds are distorted and muffled under the swirling cold gray blanket. The warm lights seem more welcoming than usual as you escape the damp and lonely night for the noise and companionship of the local nightlife in the downtown bars and restaurants.

    Beautiful approach - I feel the chill from the snow but the hints of the red background peeking through provide a lovely, warm contrast that's so inviting.

    Fun and very well done.

    Fantastic light!


    This is a beautiful portrait. For this viewer that lovely face reflects innocence and purity, although that is perhaps not what the artist intended. Great skill is demonstrated with all the elements of this piece - particularly the textures of the hair and the cap. Overall it is an outstanding image.
