Artist: grumpy and uncomfortable
Landscape: out of reach

Verna Vogel landscape painting on location
Alberta Landscape #69
oil on cradled panel
10x10 inches
Wind in face, clumsy gloved hands, vision obscured by slipping hat, high level of human-nature disconnection... stubbornly I painted anyway.  

It was just so beautiful out there, flat and rather bleak, basically a perfect landscape which I did not manage to depict very well.  Chalk this one up as a record of a moment, nothing more and nothing less.
