When It's Cold Outside

Mendocino Coast, 8 x 10 oil painting

The Winter months can seem long and discouraging to an artist that likes to paint outdoors. We find ourselves wondering if Spring will ever come. When I become lethargic and unmotivated to be creative, I head to the beach. Even in Winter, it lifts my spirits. This has increased my creative energy. What do you do as a plein air painter to get through Winter?
