Snow Day


Yesterday it started to snow lightly and although it is nice to see the snow fall-it has been so dry here- I wanted to see Sharon McCoy's art show at Adams State College. Well, I took off and
started to slide around the County Line Rd a little and just decided to not go... What a wimp!

Woke up this morning and there was about 12 inches of the white stuff on the ground. This painting is not entirely a plein air because I painted it from my window. So what really decides on whether a painting is a plein air or not? I'm just curious because Coni and I have had this discussion numerous times and have not come to any conclusion on the matter.

The painting above was an exercise in painting bare branch trees- so much negative space...

I believe that a plein air painting can be done inside, as long as what you are looking at is right outside the window. Just because its called plein air doesn't mean you have to suffer outside in the cold, right? :) On another note, I like the sun in this piece!
