Well I survived the party. Being from the introvert side of psychology recovery takes a bit longer. The bus providing transportation was a good idea and the route traveled was very interesting visually. It was a cold day with snow squalls and there was a very festive feel. I'm posting a picture from last year that was done en plein air just as snow started to fall. It got to the point where the snow crystals were inhibiting the ability to mix the oil paint. I enjoy the cool grays just before accumulating snow falls as much as the the interesting light effects that happen as the storm passes and the sun comes out.
