Quick Impression, Mt. David

We had a light dusting of fresh snow, maybe the last of this year and I took my dog for a walk up Mt. David at 8am, it was foggy but the rising sun gave the scene a yellow glow. Painted in oil on a 6 by 8 panel.

Plain Air, Creswell

Another Plain Air today at the Garden Lake Park in Creswell, and the battle continues, first the elements, it was cold, finger numbing at 8am, lack of technique, etc.

But on the bright side, its always wonderful to be out in the fresh air, observing the wild life and hoping the next painting will be the one.
