Ok, it’s JUNE 1st! WHY do we have 15 MPH winds, and 53oF weather? Monday is painting day, and come hell or high water I go painting. Today, I dressed for winter. I wore leggings under my jeans, a sleeveless T shirt, turtleneck sweater, winter jacket, and a shop coat! I found a winter toque in the van and put that on under my straw hat. I did bring gloves and I wish I had worn them. By the end of the day my hands were so stiff I could not hold my brush. I may have looked ridiculous, but I was warm, except for my hands that is. In spite of the horrid weather it was a good day. Good friends, curious wildlife, many curious onlookers, and I did get a decent painting completed.
