Beautiful plein air painting. So nice to paint outside. We had cold and a little snow falling today and my electricity was out during the time I had to paint today! Can't paint in a dim house.

Your watercolours are lovely, Jane, what a beautiful plein air landscape - and I especially love your wisteria painting too. I see you must have been with Debbie on the Jean Haines workshop - what a wonderful experience that must have been!
