I had a burning desire to get into the studio and paint. I have been working outside in temperatures ranging from -25 to -4 Celsius for over 3 weeks now on a new home for a client who couldn't wait till spring. Nevertheless my nose is always running and all extremities are suffering from the extended cold. It is nice to put some Chopin on the CD player and try some stuff in my relatively warm Studio. Tonight (because I am a carpenter) I decided to use a finishing nail to assist me in this painting. It worked quite well. The scene is a common place little pond that drains into Wellington Creek not far from where I live.
