Plein air painting in winter

OK, so I’m crazy.  But I greatly admire the plein air painters who tromped through the woods, fields and villages in the winter to paint snow scenes.  I will admit that I haven’t been too adventurous in this area but I actually went out into our woods a few weeks ago when we had our first real snow this season.  It was actually great fun but I froze my feet off!  Lesson:  get some foot warmers before I go out in this kind of weather next time.  I had three layers of socks but that didn’t help.
