8 x 10 acrylic on canvas. This is one of my first attempts at plein air painting. I settled into this spot until my fingers and paints started to freeze, then continued back at home. I loved how this one spot was unfrozen while you could walk on the lake with no worries whatsoever. It's like the biological activity was keeping it from freezing. I also liked how the water was like a black jewel in contrast to the white crystals of the snow.
