Today was our first painting day for the Ohio Plein air group at Highbanks. Excited as I was, I arrived and set up at 7:45. I painted for about a hour until my hands weren't moving very well because of the cold. I left got a cup of coffee and shivered and painted for another hour. Even though the cold and wind were against me painting - it was wonderful! Surrounded by nature and other artists just as intent on painting.
