A Very Cold Day! (X-Posted PA Forum)

My local PA Group got out yesterday for the first paint-out of 2012. I had several very plausible reasons for remaining indoors, but peer pressure got to me. It was bitterly cold with a strong South East wind blowing in off the Irish Sea, but we got some shelter in a little harbour known locally as "The Safe". This was my one and only effort:-

Winter Afternoon, The Safe, Rosslare
(12" x 10" Oil on Board)




I've got a photo of the scene on my blog, if anyone wants a look.

Michael

Thanks Randall. I don't know about "tough", but we're definitely a little mad!
