   This morning's greetings were unlike 
yesterday's gray and cold muckiness,
instead the sky was brilliant blue 
full of fluffy white clouds
being ushered across the sky 
with help of high winds,
creating wonderful blue shadows
on the bright and glowing snow!

Out in the yard,
it was me against the wind.

The wind attempted to knock
the painting off the easel a number of times.

The wind pushed clouds infront of the Sun.

The wind also attempted to push the
brush around as if, it wanted to paint.

Nearing the end of this plein-air session,
my hands and fingers were starting
to lose the battle against the wind,
so, I happily retreated to 
a warm studio to make
a few final touches.

Outside, the wind is still howling.  

And, the painting is safe and sound in the studio.

Cheers, ~ Polly ~
