Poway Lake #3

Poway Lake
Oil on canvas
5x7 inches

The wind was blowing so hard I had to wear the hood of my sweatshirt to warm my ears. The real reason was to keep the hair out of my face while painting. Surprisingly, the clear plastic gloves actually kept my hands warm. No paint on these hands! . . . no coldness either!
I was excited to finally be oil painting outdoors but as I was setting up in the cold, I started to wonder what I was DOING out there. It was 10 a.m. and the fishermen and fisherwomen (lots of fisherwomen!) were starting to come in. I was just getting started.
What to leave in, what to leave out.
