Plein Air in A Maine Snowstorm

I have a new easel. It's a guerrilla thumb box, very compact and packable. Today was the first chance I had to give it a try, in my Subaru Crosstrek-a relatively smallish car. It was snowing lightly and very beautifully, too. Driving here and there just outside of my town in the area of old farms and hills, I found a good place to work and sat in the car to paint with my new tiny paintbox. Very fun, and the result felt like true observation, rather than using memory or photography. Success- other than some errant paint on the car inside! I guess I will have to figure out that part next.
