Outside the Lines Chat Thread ~ February 2017

Happy Groundhog Day, from the groundhog state!!! Six more weeks it is.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N1KlfMzF5-I

Our winter here in Pennsylvania has been surprisingly kind. We seem to be in a doughnut hole, because everyone around us is getting hammered. While I am not a big winter fan, I do enjoy the hibernation time. I am forced to stay indoors and get things done in the house, instead of just wanting to sit on my porch with a good book.

Re: Outside the Lines Chat Thread ~ February 2017

Elaine, thank you for reminder of this wonderful day
We do not celebrate this here in Russia, but the film became smth like a tradition - some tv-chanels show it every year this very day.
(I do really hope, that my chess won't have a groundhog day , as I feel it is finished)
Now, I'm thinking about 2 new pictures. One is to be ready at mid of March, other at mid of may. The first is for my brother's mother-in-law, the second is for his wife. For a moment, I haven't even chosen a reference. May be flowers, as they are always good for women.

Re: Outside the Lines Chat Thread ~ February 2017

Groundhog's (Marmota monax) Finnish name means 'forest marmot' but again and again bad translators transform it to 'earth pig', ie. aardvark (Orycteropus afer). We have a long tradition of subtitling (films and TV) but it's slowly going down the drain because some bosses think that good translations cost too much.

For us Finns, Yle is now showing the TV serial Colour: The Spectrum of Science by BBC.

Heikki, I have been watching that same series here in Canada. Today it is cold -7C, but the sun is shining. We had a warmer January, but the warmer temperatures meant cloud cover and no sun. No sun is depressing.

It was lovely here, though a mite cold. About 56 degrees F. I would guess. February is a nice month, though not a patch on March and April

Re: Outside the Lines Chat Thread ~ February 2017

Heikki, talking about films... Have you seen "Menolippu Mombasaan"? It's smth like a remake of "Knockin' on Heaven's Door". I've translated it once (Mombasaan) for a Festival of Finnish films. It was a great challenge, because I've got printed scripts in English, but the whole soundtrack was Finnish )) Sometimes only intonation helped me to understand who had said which phrase.
And the music is amazing!

PS: I've given Chess to framing studio. We've spent about 40 minutes with manager choosing frame and mount. Hope it will be good in finished variation.

No, I haven't and I probably wouldn't like it anyway... Too new for my taste.

But I just found a delightful web page about obsolete pigments including a link to part two:

Re: Outside the Lines Chat Thread ~ February 2017

A praise to the German customer service. Last Thursday I asked a question about new Schmincke Horadam watercolour sets

http://www.schmincke.de/produkte/aqu...arell.html?L=1

and the answer came within hours. And today - just two working days later - a printed copy of Horadam catalog arrived by mail. Bruce McEvoy of http://www.handprint.com/HP/WCL/water.html considered Schmincke's full-colour catalogs 'marvellous' and so do I.

Today I got two boxes of art supplies delivered, with some supplies that I already use and just needed (wanted) more of and some for me new supplies that I can't wait to try out, perfect timing for Valentine's day I'm soooo excited!
