Last Sign of Winter- plein air 8"x 10" oil

Got out today, packed my gear about a mile into the
national forest. Even got a bit of a sunburn today, and
was a whopping 75 degrees at one point! YEEeehaw!

Nature was throwing a lot of lumber at me today, and
about 2/3's the way into this one, it felt as though I was
going to lose it, and the work fail. When such feeling
comes, I know its the time to focus and nail the values,
and in short order regained my confidence and brought
it to a proper finishing...
