Sometimes You Can't Wait for Spring

By the calendar it is still very much winter but when the temperatures reach the 70's, there are trees budding and flowers blooming it is a real early spring like  weather treat.  Although the colors are not as vivid as it will be when full bloom occurs, it is interesting to see the colors of late winter.
Judy gave me a call and we ventured out to some lovely fields in Botetourt County
to paint and enjoy the warm weather.

Judy is working with acrylic and painting 2 panels.
Judy's well on the way to a masterpiece!
I decided to start some paintings using pastel and then complete them either in pastel or spray them with clear  acrylic and then use it as a basis to a mixed media art piece.
It was just a joy to be out and paint in the natural light.

It looks like we will have more mild days to get an early start on our plein air painting.  Such a treat to be able to do this  in the late part of February.
No doubt we will have some more winter days but grab those pretty days when you can.
