Hot Off the Easel at the Lodge

Joe Mancuso has been up at Rock Creek this week, painting en plein air in spite of the cold weather.  I thought I'd share the paintings he posted on his blog, Painting Every Day.

A Chance of Snow 8x6 Oil

October 4:  "While this image is being posted, it is snowing outside my cabin. This was painted yesterday in the high sierras of California. There have been very few times that it has been as cold while I've painted on location. The wind was blowing and the weather forecast was calling for a chance of snow. I loved it. This morning I awoke to snow on the ground. A treat for this southern Californian. This piece is available at Rock Creek Lodge."

October Snow 6x8 Oil

October 7:  "Last Monday morning, I awoke to a temperature of 8 degrees. It had warmed up to a balmy 17 by the time I began painting this piece. Although there have been times when it can be too much to deal with, I enjoy painting in extreme weather conditions because it is part of the excitement of working on location. I love to see if I can capture the moment. This piece is available at Rock Creek Lodge."
