"Winter Field" - 6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

"Winter Field" -  6 x 6 inches - oil on canvas

Day 22 in the "30 paintings in 30 days" challenge.

I was itching to get outside and do a bit of plein air painting.  I pulled together my supplies, drove to a nearby field and set up my easel by the side of the road.  Everything was going well until a strong gust of wind tipped my easel.  I managed to catch it before it fell but walnut oil spilled down the front of my coat and I dropped by brush in the snow.  What a mess.  I finished up the last few brushstrokes and went home to wash my coat.

"Winter Field" is a 6 inch square painting and is available for $60.  Click the Buy Now button below to purchase using a credit card/Paypal or here for other payment options.

Your painting turned out beautiful.
How nice you were able to get outside to paint.
Hope you were able to get all the walnut oil out of your coat. By looking at your painting I'd say that having your painting fall in the snow is much better than the dirt ... just guessing.

Hope today goes better.

Your painting is lovely. Sorry about the upset, hope your coat cleaned up OK. Here in Wisconsin it's been below zero Can't imagine any soul out plein air painting in this. I will go out when the temp goes above 20.
