I'm back. After a long winter with lots of snow and cold, wet weather, I came out of hibernation. You would think that after living in Kentucky for 20 years that I would be used to the cold. I live through it, but I don't welcome it. So! For Christmas, my husband bought a small, portable easel for me, and I've used it twice, now. I've been wanting to try plein air for quite some time, but, well, obviously, being the kind of girl that lives for warm weather, I would never venture out to paint in the snow, for instance. Probably not in the rain, either, unless it was very light rain, and warm, at that. So, Monday, I packed up my stuff, and walked down by one of our seating areas in the woods, and set up.
