OK, I’ll admit, it didn’t feel like winter. I painted plein air at an apple orchard yesterday. It was unseasonable warm for Ohio in December. The sun was shining, and the orchard smelled like a hay ride. I was captivated by the rows of baby apple trees leading to a line of trees in the distance. I also got to try out my new Strada easel and Benro tripod. They both exceeded my expectations. Both are super sturdy, yet compact for travel. A great day all around! #stradaeasel @Benrousa
