Painted this yesterday at Mystery Pond in warm conditions....around 35 degrees. Yes, that feels like a heat wave now. It was fun trying to paint the frozen pond -- imagining all those little creatures under the ice, just waiting for Spring. My painting partner Lynn and I both agreed that painting the snow is a wonderful break from green, green, green. We are so thrilled with WHITE (for now anyway).

Boots in the snow....this time, it's boots on the ice. #13 was painted this morning on the frozen shores of Lake Michigan, another beautiful part of this Schlitz Audubon property. Next time I need to remember to put my gripper trax on my boots. Thanks to Liesl for convincing me to take the hike down to the lake. The colors are so subtle between the sky/water and ice formations. I thought of our son Michael while painting this, he's away at school but has such a love for Lake Michigan. We'll have to take another hike down here during winter break.

Okay, call me crazy, but I painted this morning while the temp was 12 degrees. It really wasn't too bad for an hour painting session, had on lots of layers. It was so peaceful tucked away in the woods this morning -- the only sound came from the waves from Lake Michigan in the distance. At the end of an hour, a curious Chickadee came to visit.

Don't know why I thought I could use watercolors when the temps were well below freezing today....oh well, here's a picture of my little palette with frozen paints. Also, a nice photograph of a turkey and a deer nearby in the background. All in all, still a great morning to be out painting.
