Boy is it cold outside! woke up to only a few degrees this morning ,went to 18 during the day and back down again tonight.
This is a scene I captured in town from my car and painted it in the comfort of my warm studio. Two years ago I had experienced painting Plein air in the White Mountains of New Hampshire at 14 below, so I know how it feel to be out in that kind of weather, I am glad I did it two years in a row,it was a challenge, but my arthritis couldn't take it anymore.
In this scene I liked the warm colors of the weeds and still the cool colors of the snow and icy waters.
this painting is available email me, $100.00 as is now ,when I frame it it will be $175.00
