This barn is set back quite a distance from the road. With the snow coming up over my boots, I was sure happy I didn't forget anything back at the car.
Even though the temperature was quite cold, I never even thought about it while I was painting. Painting is a wonderful meditation.
p.s. When painting on site you can see into and paint the shadows in a scene like this. A camera simply can't accurately portray both the bright lights from the snow and the delicate colors in the shadows when the contrast is so great.
