Very windy and in the 50's, just when I finished my easel blew off the rocks and into the brush below...very busy day for tourists and leaf peepers at Cape Porpoise, spoke with many nice folks while I was painting, hope the auction does well tonight!

"Whetstone Bridge 1"

Rained out for painting on 10-1, but was able to go out and paint with Marsha Donahue on 10-2. Spent the morning at Whetstone Bridge painting, the colors so beautiful, very cold, then we spent the rest of the day taking photos. Decided to try a 24 x 24 and give myself a challenge.
