View Full Version : By the Fireside... October 28-November 3, 2007

Another fire for another week... At the moment it has been raining for three straight days here in Puerto Rico. The tile floors are slick with moisture, my printing papers are limp, and I'd like to see some sun. The forecast is another couple of days of rain and no sun... but at least we haven't had hurricanes this year and the hurricane season is almost over....
I find it very ironic that we have too much rain and southern California is in dire need of moisture!!!

Forum Update... You'll be happy to know that we finally have Southwest/Western on the Channels drop-down menu (navigation bar on the upper left of your screen), for those of you who like finding your favorite forums that way...

Diane, about time we got on the drop down menu...lol I don't know where everyone has gotten to. I think the goblins had something to do with it:eek:

Hey guys, maybe the drop down will help. Sometimes this forum is like a slow moving train. I get on most of the time in the early morning and I'm the only one in here. I think it will really pick up and move though. Looks to be a great forum for showcasing work. I'll drop some hints in D&S maybe that will help alittle.
Rain... l can relate to that. We just got over a spell. Now it's starting to get colder and won't be long before I'll be breaking out the old 4X4. Hmmmm, that's not a bad thing but these gas prices are gonna kill me. I get about nine miles to the gallon.:mad:
Hey Sassy, the link to your studio don't work!

yes, drop down should help. I know anyone working with SW themes will be delighted that there is a separate all media forum.
In SE AZ we are warm and dry. It is making for a very pleasant fall but it is sure unseasonable, or at least I hope it is and won't become the norm. I'm still wearing shorts. I put the portable heater on in the morning just to take off the chill til I wake up, and in the aft I'm often putting on the cooler for an hour to put some chill back into the house. Crazy. The trees are non the less turning so I'm hoping to get time to crank up my 4wheel drive and get up into the mountain draws for some good fall pics. Or maybe even some plein air work though I find that tricky with pastels.

Gas mileage... another reason it's wonderful to be 'retired' and have my studio at home... but I envy the cold and snow!!! It's all very romantic when you can take it in small doses! :lol:
I've done some plein aire with pastels and found I really got crazy with the colors, TJ, more so than with oils. My only issue with pastels is they scratch the back of my throat so I have to really cover up and make sure I have the breeze at my back.

I'm back after my week at the plein air workshop with Bob Rohm at the Bunkhouse in the Texas Hill Country with no internet! I didn't miss it as much as I thought I would, was just too exhausted in the evenings to care. Painting is work! Or maybe the learning is work and the brain gets so tired.
Anyway, I will be posting to my blog in a few days and put some up here.
I didn't see a new Fireside for this week, do you start them Diane or anyone?

Great to have you back, Jo. I'll go check your blog for you adventures!
The Fireside can be started by anyone... I'll race you over there to see who starts it first!
