Kerncliff Park, Burlington

Kerncliff Park, Burlington 8x12 oil

Spring is in the air, (or is that just wishful thinking).  The days ARE getting longer and the temperatures seem to be getting warmer.  This past Monday was the first day that I've managed to get outside to paint.  At -3 C, I thought I might be overdressed, with about four layers of clothing, (including my long down jacket), but with the wind blowing it was much colder and I felt quite comfortable.  There are a lot of wonderfully rocky views to paint at this park since it used to be a quarry.  I chose to paint this lone birch tree standing in the deep snow, with the view of Lake Ontario off in the distance, (no rocks).  I'm crossing my fingers for more beautiful days ahead!
