Arghh. Computer Problems-AGAIN!

Brother. What a nightmare. After all my fights with Dell and Vista I thought all was humming along smoothly. That is, it was, until I decided to install my wireless trackball and keyboard. I fought with it for two days (should have been plug and play, mind you, and they both work fine on the xp machine at the gallery.) sigh.

First, I went toLogitech, and made sure the software I have was current. It was not, so I downloaded and installed it. No change. So I called. No help. I kept banging on it. Then I went to Dell support. I paid for extended warranty service. Not so much service. I didn’t buy the Logitech devices from Dell, so even though it’s a windows error, no service.

Finally, I went to my support team (iyogi.com) and they worked at it all afternoon, remotely controlling the laptop, but alas, no luck. They sent the issue to “their research team”. I’m supposed to hear back from them on Wednesday morning. Good grief. Guess I should start saving for a MAC!

The good thing is that while the IYOGI tech was trying again and again and again to install the trackman and keyboard, I was painting. How awesome is that! Still, here I sit with the laptop on my lap, instead of on the stand I moved into the studio to support it and the two wireless devices. Best laid plans. I’m off for 10 days. I don’t intend to let it distract me from relaxing!

March 20th and 0 degrees

Brrrr. March 20th, 0 degrees and a foot (or more) of new snow!

Take a look.
Ice fog is heavy in the air. The snow has stopped falling…at least for now.

I doubt I’ll make it to the gallery today. Not a really big deal, Saturdays are slow anyway. Once the Post Office closes at noon, it’s snoozeville. Good for me…I can be where I’m happiest, in my studio! I have a painting to finish and it’s coming along nicely. I’ll post it when its done.

In the meantime, it’s still, quiet and I’ll pour a cup of Joe and watch the fog lift. Happy morning to you.

New Studio and New Paintings

It’s been a bit since I posted because I was working like mad in all my free time (of which there is very little) to finish the new studio and move in. So, bruised and banged, still getting paint from my hair, it’s done and I’m in. It feels so good, I don’t want to leave it and don’t look at it on days I’m headed to the gallery cuz if I do, that’s where I’m drawn! So, here are some pics for you:
this is looking from the dining room, down into the studio. Sorry it’s a little dark, the light from the windows confused the camera!

This look in from the master bath, which is on the same level as the studio (three steps down from the rest of the house.)
and this is standing in the corner by the first window, looking back toward the stairs and the dining room. I’m particularly proud of the way the rammed earth wall with the engraved zia came out painted. I didn’t know if would work, but I love it!

here is a painting I just finished:

It is 30 high and 24 wide, acrylic and gold on canvas. “A River Runs Through It”.

And this is what you see on my table in the studio photos. It is a diptich..two 36 x 12 canvases, and also acrylic. I hope to finish it on Sunday…or maybe I’ll take it to the Visitor Center and finish it on Saturday. We’ll see.

I’m going to call it “Transitions: Self Reflection”

So, you see, I have been busy! In the meantime, John and I celebrated 21 years of marriage, and I was re-elected the board of the Chamber of Commerce. That’s enough for two weeks!
