During my Christmas in Idaho, I decided it was about time to do some plein aire snow scenes. The cold does things to oil paint. Mostly makes it cold, and thick. Which I find I like, but takes awhile to dry. This scene is the pond in front of the Ranch. The infamous 3 adirondack chairs, in the snow. It took approximately 55 min from the point where I started to mix paint till I was too cold to paint any longer. Sun was almost down, and I could feel the cold thru my boot soles!
