Mostly cloudy today, and very cold – about 10 degrees. There is ice on the lake and snow yet in the grass.

I’ve painted near this lake before. This time I set up on the north end and looked west. The sun was behind hazy clouds so it was dimmed and everything had a warm glow, almost other-worldly. I happened to have a brownish-orange toned board with me that worked out pretty well.

On her terrific blog Rose Schuring has encouraged everyone to get out there and paint – thanks for the extra motivation and inspiration, Rose! She has also been very generous in sharing her art business expertise.
