Ice Painting and 2014 Workshop Schedule

I just had to break the ice and go outside to paint today. So, I caught some ice (think winter Olympics - it's that cold here!) and headed to my favorite estuary at Port Stanley, about a mile from home. I loved how the ice formed-up during our recent nor'easter, leaving small, tell-tale frozen layers of salt water in this shallow estuary. That old farm house in the distance has been there for over 100 years and made a nice counter color to the frozen estuary. I think it's finished but will have another look tomorrow, after I warm up! Painting outside also reminded me about the upcoming workshops I'm teaching.
