This is a larger work than I ususally do. I headed up to the pass to catch an early snowfall (what was I thinking, I have 5 more months of this!) and this is what I found. I painted a smaller 10 x 12, plein air, to capture the color and essence of this scene. It was about 38 degrees at that time with a good wind. I used my SUV to block what wind I could and eventually ended up in the back end of the truck with just my easel outside. I finally had to stop when I found my hands not working well and having a hard time thinking because I was so cold. I have done a few touch ups since this picture but this is pretty close.
