I didn’t venture out to paint last weekend, it was simply too frigid. Consequently, I felt antsy early this morning. I kept poking my head out and thinking it is still too cold, and I’m not obliged to paint anyway. Leave me be!
I busied myself by applying a gray colored ground to a few supports and thought that might be enough. Well it wasn’t. So, I donned numerous layers and went out late morning to encounter a truly beautiful day, the Canada geese honking, and the frozen lake making its own, strange, deep sounds, as the ice ached and groaned. I was glad to have taken the proverbial plunge.
