To all you plein air painters: Just so I don't feel like a picture-posting-hog on our facebook page, how about a friendly little competition to help generate some activity...We're offering the artist who posts the most paintings and accumulates the most "likes" a "Featured Artist" article to be displayed on the front page of the Triad Outdoor Painters website for a period of 2 weeks. The contest will begin Feb. 26 and end on March 12. You can post as many plein air paintings as you wish and we'll tally up the total number of likes. I won't participate because I write enough about myself lol. But we'd love to see your plein air pieces and get all your friends to like them! So, get to painting...and get to the TOPS facebook page, and get to posting!

Good advice Carole. I'm just going to store my toboggan in my vehicle for now on lol.

Earlier Jeremy & Craig commented on dressing warmly and in layers for plein air painting in cold weather. I have read that 80 per cent of the body heat is lost through the head. The toboggan that Jeremy left behind is a valuable asset to cold weather painting. Also, a hood that can be pulled up over the tobaggon adds more protection and an additional layer. Small foot warmers with adhesive for attaching to sock soles can add comfort when the ground is cold and damp.
