In addition to working on the portrait below on Sunday, I decided to head to the arboretum in Oakdale and do a plein air. It seemed warm enough to sit outside, so I took my painting chair and supplies and walked a bit. Next thing you know I have a hat and gloves on. By the time I finished this 3 x 5 painting my feet and hands were frozen. I think the dampness of the ground was the problem. Although I wasn't sitting with my feet in the snow, the ground was mighty cold.
