Ok, it’s JUNE 1st!  WHY do we have 15 MPH winds, and  53oF weather?  Monday is painting day, and come hell or high water I go painting.  Today, I dressed for winter.  I wore leggings under my jeans, a sleeveless T shirt, turtleneck sweater, winter jacket, and a shop coat!  I found a winter toque in the van and put that on under my straw hat.  I did bring gloves and I wish I had worn them.  By the end of the day my hands were so stiff I could not hold my brush.   I may have looked ridiculous, but I was warm, except for my hands that is.  In spite of the horrid weather it was a good day.  Good friends, curious wildlife, many curious onlookers, and I did get a decent painting completed.

Artists working in their cars to keep warm.  I worked off the back of my van.  Too bad the wind was in my face.  Horizontal flag tells the story.
