Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... October 2017

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

I was afraid I may have missed someone being absent yesterday, but I guess not.

Horrific news out of Las Vegas, I don't think I can wrap my head around it, really.

Here's a new Simon's cat, and it's a good one. All new stuff:


Everyone has a great Moansday! Please check in!

Marcia...just was browsing on Spotify and checked to see if possibly our mutual friend Fred Drake was there...well, his music was not, but there is someone with an account there named Fred Drake....relative? or just coincidence?

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... October 2017

Good Morning Oilycats!!!

I decided that I like the library/studio for my morning coffee:

The doors are closed today though, because it is chilly. The house really isn't that big, 2 bedroom, 1 bath, but it is so cool that it has one big room I can paint in. Whenever I start painting again. I am thinking end of October.

I plan to take my easel and stuff up to the studio I am sharing for art tours and paint then. In retrospect, maybe I shouldn't have dragged it all down here to the new place. Oh well, it is still stacked in a corner, so won't be that hard to move, and I don't need all of it.

So not painting, but I needed some small stuff to sell during the tours, so I am making transfers onto polymer clay. There is a bit of a learning curve and I am trying different methods, but the results are pretty nice. So far I am just transfering photos, but once I am 100% satisfied with the results, I will make little prints of my paintings. Will post pics later when I have time.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... October 2017

Beautiful view Becca. We took a hike this morning to Key's View in the park. There was a lot of smoke from a nearby fire, but down in the valley to the left is Palm Springs.

It is difficult to take pictures in daylight with a phone, all I can see is my face reflected in the screen.

Mosc, I am looking forward to seeing some pics of Muffin!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... October 2017

Yes, all new stuff as far as I could tell. Lately, there seem to have been a lot of repeats combined with advice from experts.

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... October 2017

Wow, Jessica! How did you do that with your painting strip?

Marcia, now I'm jealous of all that light you'll get in your new studio. I agree with Mosc about the scenery, too. Western spaces are so lovely!

I just got back from my gallery to find a painting that I meant to take up there today, so I'll need to make another trip.

Nice cityscape, Becca!

Re: As the Oily Rag Burns.... October 2017

Jess You are one brilliant girl!

I went outside Tuesday and watered all my roses and plants. So what happens the very next day?

You guessed it...tons of rainfall! And we're scheduled to get even more tomorrow. Now I'll have to go out and pull the grass out of gardens. October is one of my very favorite months, and I'm looking forward to doing some tree painting - I love Autumn trees.
