Hidden Farm Shed



Hidden Farm Shed, 9 x 12
.
Last Thursday, our painting group met at a local farm to paint. It was such a cold morning that the farm hands were covering all the crops to save them from an expected freeze. Let's just say that my fingers and toes were stiff from the arctic air in spite of all the layers I had on. I was determined to stay till I finished, but it took me quite awhile to warm back up!
.
Side note: Many thanks to Charley Parker for featuring my work on the December 6 post of his very cool blog, Lines and Colors. Please check it out, and thank you Charley!

I say... it looks like staying out in the cold was well worth it... I might sugest hot hands and tosty toes to stay warm... you put a set in your gloves and a set in your shoes. They kept me warm all throught the winter in londonand dublin for my silver drawing class.

Another beautiful piece. I love how the yellow/orange tree and blue/violet sky complement each other so well. Great job on being mentioned in Charlie's site.
