Snowmelt at Caratunk
I felt compelled to do at least one painting of snow before it's all gone so I headed out to Caratunk Audubon Preserve. I knew there was a lovely stream there that would make a good painting subject. I hadn't painted outside for several months so of course, something went wrong- I hiked through the woods only to find when I got there that my tripod was broken. It had broken before and I had superglued it together, but this time there was no repairing it.
I found a rock I could sit on with a reasonably good view of the stream and managed to get a half decent painting. It was a bit precarious- one careless move and my pochade box would have ended up in the stream. All's well that ends well, though. Almost makes me want more snow...
