Lorna - gorgeous! That's what my backyard looks like now too (only a whole lot smaller... but there's a hot tub in it so I'll make do!). Robert - your work is gorgeous! However I have to agree that you're crazy
(as if we're not all crazy scraping bazillions of teeny-tiny lines... somehow it doesn't seem as labour-intensive as the pen & ink though!).
Maybe it's because I'm Canadian... but I absolutely LOVE the climate here in Colorado. It's like all the good bits (snow, chilly days) but with sunshine
and only for 1/3 of the year. Of course this is after many years on the east coast (temperate but wet and overcast) and a few in Saskatchewan (colder than Mars twice
the last year I lived there.. that is a place where both Canadians and Americans learn that celcius and farenheit meet at -40... and yes Pamela I think you're a little crazy living there and I send you wishes that your car plug doesn't freeze and snap!). Of course my achilles heel is that I can't take the heat at all - the thought of Florida or Texas or northern Australia ... eep!!
I don't get on the boards as much these days but luckily that's because I'm getting crap done (yay me!). And with the snow-dumping I'm getting out on the snowboard - it's killing me (being fat and out of shape as I am) but what a workout and I LOVE it. So please forgive me for popping in every so often, leaving a bunch of random comments and then disappearing again.
And my cute story of the week - I'm still tweaking 'Jazz' and have been frustrated that I can't get it the way I want it, so I asked my hubby for some feedback (he's a vet and not inclined toward the visual arts much at all) - he looks at it, thinks a moment, and then starts telling me that he's 'not sure about the values'
. Apparently I talk about art more than I thought
