I got two 2x3 inch miniatures before I caved in to the frigid weather. It was miserable out there. My hands were shaking the whole time.
Love,
Linda

Linda, these show the cold. Imagine if it were any larger :eek: you may have been frost bitten. The colors really show the coolness. I like that salmony like color.

Great job. Just the right size for plein air when the weather is that cold. LOL. :D

Dianna,
You are so right. I must admit it was very frustrating. On top of the cold, the wind was making the pochade box lid wiggle too. They were disasters but fun, none the less. I will make another attempt soon in more optimal weather.

Thanks everyone for the kind incouragement.
Love,
Linda

Linda, these were great little guys....you are mistaken to think they are disasters....It souunds more like you deserve a medal for even attempting to brave the conditions. :p

Cheers, Dianna

Not disasters in my book Linda. I particularly like the second one - I can feel the chill despite the warm salmony colours. The sponteneity of plein aire shows.

What a nice group of friends you all are. Thanks for the incouragement. I am branching out into new territory with the mini's and doing some still life studies that I haven't done since art school a hundred years ago. I like to challenge myself and keep busy with new things. I believe it helps me to stay fresh as a landscape painter and not get stale. Thanks for letting me show my feeble attempts here with miniatures. Some of you are very accomplished in that subject and inspiring to me.
Love,
Linda
