I just knew that I wouldn’t be able to keep up with the facebook challenge.The weather forcast promised cold frosty and clear weather. This motive lured me already the other day when the lake was getting a slightly slim surface of ice. Tomorrow the weather will be changing again and all the frost will be gone.

My board wasn’t big enough so I just put up two of them beside each other. Works fine as well.

This study I will unfortunately have to finish in the studio, because at one point I had too much reflected sunlight on the canvas.

This day felt almost like spring. The birds are singing their spring song of love and the sun is already very strong. I have forgotten how pleasant the sunlight feels on the face and all the people around me are looking friendly.

Feeling blessed.
