A Very Chilly Morning

It's been absolutely frigid here for the past week, and it looks like it's going down below zero again tonight. Our house is perched on top of a hill, so we are buffeted by winter winds all season long, and it's really been shaking the house today! But we've had some beautiful sunrises and sunsets. Yesterday morning's was so pretty, I just had to pull out my nature journal and try to capture it on paper.

Hope you're staying warm!

    1. Yes, I love being all snug and cozy inside on these cold winter days. I'm always so glad I work from home and can paint in the morning in my pajamas with a hot cup of coffee.

    1. The only thing my view is lacking is water. :( Wish I had Penobscot Bay in my eastern view! I'll be there in June, though - can't wait! I'm bringing a group of sketchers to Owls Head.
