Christmas Eve Day 2008

Even though it was a very chilly +9˚F with a light breeze (God only knows what the wind chill was), I couldn't stand it any longer. I haven't been out to paint the fresh snow yet this year, so I did. It was beautiful but difficult to be comfortable enough standing for an hour or so to really do it justice.
Times like this are "Paint something and get the h*** out a' here!!!" days.
I won't go into all of the things on me that froze almost to the point of frost bite, but when the bristles of your hog brushes are breaking off in little pieces, you know that 'somethin's' up!? Then there's the paint which is like trying to paint with nearly set concrete. Okay... 'nuff complaining.
Merry Christmas to one and all!
