I got my taxes done today! and had a bit of time after my appointment to paint. the day was bright and crisp, but cold, I didn't get started until around 4:00, so it's nice that there's more daylight.
This was my scene when I started, it's right out side of my shop doors, I didn't want to do the swing set, so I didn't. Notice the light on the trees to the left, I didn't get it. I painted for less than an hour, but with set-up and break down. I'm also more cavalier about my layering, I didn't have my heavy weight thermals or my insulated bibs on, only one wool sweater, and my fake wool socks. It makes a difference, so next year I'm going to get some better stuff, like boots and maybe if I'm good some wool long johns!
