I painted with MOPAPA this morning and only lasted two hours. We were near the Audubon Center at Riverlands. It is so cold by the river – froze my fingers and toes! This painting was completed at home from memory. I had all the color notes completed on site, but could not work the brushes well enough with my cold hands to complete it. Shawn Cornell suggested I try finishing it from memory, which I didn’t believe I could do. Once home, I gave it a shot anyway, mostly for the challenge. It’s surprising how much you notice and store in your (albeit frozen) brain when you’re outside. This painting is a 9×12 oil on panel…c’mon Spring!
