This excursion really represented a turning point for me; I painted in inclement weather! I was so excited to be spending the week in beautiful Bridgeport, California with my husband, who would be fishing. My mother in law even came and offered to watch our little dachshund while I painted! Imagine the disappointment when we learned that there would be only one day of sunshine during our trip! Well, we brought some "weather proof" gear and trudged on! I discovered that painting outdoors (even in the rain) is always an exhilarating experience!
