This painting makes me very cold...it was the first day out for plein air and while the sun was bright and beautiful there was a wicked wind out that whipped around this corner and froze my fingers as I tried to paint. Standing in one place with an easel does not burn very many calories and the longer I stood, the colder I got! Finally, when I had enough of the backlighting down and the shadow patterns outlined I cried "uncle" and packed it in. Had to finish it in the studio where I warmed up with an appropriate beverage. This road really leads to a nice deadend and is perfect for early morning dog-walking. It's 7 x 5 in oil.
