Somehow I've been finding bits and pieces of time to paint lately. Here's a plein air painting I started last month:

It was a sunny day, but it was February, so this is as far as I got before my fingers were completely numb:

Snapped a few photos, loaded up my stuff, and got the heck out of there. I don't like to be cold. 

"Treeline" Oil on canvas, 10"x14"
Here it is after working on it more at home. I'd like to tweak it a bit more, but it's pretty much done. You can see how the light changed from the beginning of the painting to the end when I took my photos. 

I love those long shadows that show up around five-ish every evening. I also love those evergreens. I specifically chose this scene because of the evergreens.
