On Monday Kami and I found ourselves outside of Menomonie, WI, near Downsville, WI, in the middle of some beautiful winter light. We had planned to paint from the car and that turned out to be just the ticket. In the car we have some creature comforts that let us concentrate on painting and not survival skills to keep things from freezing. Both of us do enough of that already the way it is. Taking a break and having some music on the radio, some coffee or tea in the cups and some warmth is welcome to me. We had a great time and the results are below.

A beautiful little study full of the rich color that we experienced.
