Extreme COLD "Paint Out" Challenge for tomorrow...

Dear friends...
As you know... the weather is supposed to be extremely cold tomorrow for our paint out... what a challenge! I would like to remind everyone to dress warm by layering... Also a warm hat and gloves are a must. I'm pretty sure that we have access to working in or near the barns to get out of the wind which will be the major chill factor.

The forecast is calling for cold rain today (happening as I type this)

turning to a mixture of snow tonight with freezing temps and ice.

Tomorrow is partly cloudy in the AM and then clear and cold by noon. The temp is supposed to be around 38 degrees around the time we start with 10-20 MPH winds making it feel like 29 degrees.

My major concern is ICE on the roads tomorrow... if that is the case... for those that can't make it for safety reasons (or just because it is COLD) my paint out challenge to you is this...
~
Plein Air paint in your own yard or near your home. You may even plein air paint from the warmth of your living room by painting a scene outside your window. Many plein air artists work from inside their cars in extreme conditions.
~
I'm hoping for NO ice so I can plein air paint with my pards that are able to make it to Heart's Desire Equine Rescue tomorrow. For those of you who can't make it... I look forward to seeing the paintings from your neck of the woods.
~
Be careful...
Bernie
