The same to all from here in Cody santa!

Dana - early Thanksgiving week we went from -22F to +10F (-30C to -12C) one day and -18F to 10F (-28C to -12C) two days later WITH STRONG WIND. However, we do get Chinooks here where it can warm up by 30F in a few hours (I think that's 17 degrees C?). Cody gets weather down from Canada, up from the Gulf or Baja, over from OR and WA and occasionally from the east when a low passes by and the wind swings back around. We usually have better weather than Billings, MT our closest "big city". Oh yeah, I forgot, Yellowstone National Park often makes up its own weather and "shares" it with us. Down-sloping winds (coming over the mountains) compress the atmosphere which warms the air making a Chinook (at least that's what the weather guys say Shocked).

Errrf - it's time to get back to work on the art league stuff Neutral.

Happy December everyone. All you people in the freezing, snowy parts of the world, hope you have warm fires burning! Today is mild here and not even raining - a bonus! i was able to go outside and plant the garlic I was supposed to have planted last month. Now, back to painting . . . Smile

Well, November got kinda hectic. Here's hoping the normally very very busy month of December will allow me the chance to progress on my paintings. Best wishes to all for an artistic and social December!

I talked to Janet today and she sends her regards. She's just been super busy and hasn't had any time to paint. She said she would try to drop in when she has a chance.

Hi everyone! It has been a while. Sorry! Thank you Judy for the poke. lol Cat passed away, dog is almost lame and needs constant help, daughter broke up with boyfriend and moved back home, I'm getting married next week and work has been hectic. As they say when it rains it pours. I may not have as much time but I should have stopped in just to let you know what's going on. Thank you Callie, Judy and Sophie for continuing to be supportive and helpful! group hug Just being here is giving me the urge to paint. I'll need to check out the monthly challenges and find something really simple to do. I feel a wee bit rusty. lol Smile

Had a beautiful December sunrise this morning, and I couldn't resist getting pictures. I've put them in the Reference Library (RIL) for you to enjoy and use as you see fit.

http://watersolubleoils.forumotion.com/deserts-f21/sunrises-and-sunsets-t566.htm#7739

I'll be using them in a painting tomorrow at a show at Our Lady of the Desert. They have the Stations of the Cross in the desert hills on the property. I'll post the painting when I have it done. I get to use my new french easel I just got.

Judy

Beautiful skies, Judy, thanks for posting your pics. Hope you do well at the show!
Janet - Congratulations on the wedding! Sorry to hear about your cat and dog. It's rough when they get old/ill and we know they can't be around much longer.
Jim, I think you're sending some of that wind over here - I hear it whipping around the house and rattling the windows. Good day to settle in front of the fireplace.

I figured this would be a pretty busy time for most of us, so the Group Challenge is more like Show & Tell Laughing , feel free to post any projects you've got going - they don't have to be paintings - anything goes for now. If you want to share some creative gift ideas, that would be great! We'll get back to some painting challenges in the new year. Twisted Evil

Incredible colours in the sunrises, Judy. Can't wait to see the paintings you di from them. Smile

A frosty morning here today - lovely delicate blues, pinks, and lavendars in the sky. Going to the farmers market this morning for fresh veggies and ethically raised meat, then my grandson and I will be putting posters around town for the open studio I'm having next weekend. Hoping to collect a lot of food for the food bank at my show. Smile

I miss going to the farmer's market. There's one every Wednesday just 3 blocks from my house, but it's over by the time I'm off work No Fresh-roasted coffee beans, yummy little goat cheeses, baby beets........
I love going to open studio tours. I hope yours' is a big success, Sofie! Post some photos (if you want to) Very Happy

Good to see you back, Janet! Wow, your life sure sounds complicated for now. Congratulations on your wedding! This is such a wonderful thing...I was remarried 3 years ago, and I have to say that it seems to get a lot better at this age, than when I was younger.
Best wishes, and a happily-ever-after!

Thank you Callie for your kindness and understanding! Thank you for all your hard work with the monthly challenges. Smile

Sofie, the open studio sounds great. Good luck with the show! Smile

Thank you Dayle! It's great to be back. Jason and I have been together for 20 years but never bothered with the documentation and ceremony. We had a very long engagement. lol Always thought of each other as husband and wife without it. Smile

Went to purchase a wedding dress yesterday and get fitted. Had a tough time finding a dress I liked. Relieved that I finally found one or I would have been getting married in jeans. lol Smile

Janet, You beat me. I was engaged for 12 year before we took the step. Waited until he retired. He lives with his Dad 5 miles from work. From me it was 25 miles and besides, he went into work at 3 AM...too early for me.

Best Wishes to both of you. I love you

Judy

Thank you Judy and Jim! Smile

No plans for after the wedding but we have a trip planed for in the spring to Paris. It's a river cruise so wasn't available in the winter months. Here's a link to the description: http://www.avalonwaterways.com/Product.aspx?trip=1WPP&source=AW_Cruises_Seine
