What I don't like about winter is the weather we've been having lately - very cold and windy! Walking in the woods is no fun with the bare trees creaking and groaning overhead and the snow and ice like shards of glass under foot. Not terribly inviting.
I've heard that it is supposed to warm up a little in the next few days, all the way up into the 30s! It'll feel balmy after the chill of the last week or so.

On Monday I met with three other women who are taking Kate Johnson’s online class, Keeping an Artist’s Journal. I had a terrific time chatting, sketching, and eating with Kathleen, Pat, and Hannah, all lovely women and all wonderful artists.
Here are a few attempts at sketching en plein air from the warmth and coziness of Pat’s van.
We sat beside Swain’s Pond in Barrington and it was such fun to be in the company of sketchers. I’m usually by myself, which is wonderful too, but this was a pleasant change for me. Security in numbers.
I added color later to pen sketches.
It was a memorable and fun day!
