This past  Wednesday my friends and I from the Breakfast club ventured out to the coast for the first time this season, after a long Winter it felt good, the temperature was good but a little windy but I did managed to capture these few houses in a short amount of time before the wind got to me. Sometimes it is better not to fuss over a painting and capture the important elements of the shape and light, and that is what happen! I did not touch it after, otherwise I will ruined  it.
the Coast of New Hampshire might be small but it is beautiful.This was on "Great Island Common in New Castle,NH

 this painting is 4x8
Couple weeks ago the snow was finely melting around the coop,  I opened the door for the chickens to come out ,well they were so afraid to step on that snow, it  took two days for them to step down in the yard , here they are peeking and thinking about it! It was a long Winter to be cooped up you would of though they would of jump at the chance, but that is why we say : what are you chicken?
