It was cold, windy, and blustery here today. So of course I went out to paint! I staked out this bridge by the Potomac River & the C&O Canal and did my best with it. I solved the cold-hands problem: hand-warmers! They worked great, except that occasionally they fell out of my painting gloves.
But the wind kept getting stronger, threatening to blow my easel over, and making it hard to concentrate. And while my hands were warm, I should've packed a warmer hat! So I declared victory before this thing was really done. It's still interesting, and I had fun with it. "A blustery day by the river," oil on canvas panel, 11" x 14."
