The last plein air painting of the year?

Early December Waves
oil on canvas, 6" x 8"

I painted this earlier in the month in York, ME. While it was quite cold that day, I didn't know at the time that it could be my last plein air painting of the year. "Plein air" basically means that this little oil sketch was painted outside and on-site, which is my favorite method of working. I do paint outside in the winter, but not while it is actively snowing, as has been the case for the past three days!
