A Deer In Hand

My plans for the summer. My daughter Dakota and I own a small piece of property in New Mexico. We call it our little piece of heaven. We haven't seen it for 6 1/2 years. That trip out west with our family of 4 was the last ditch effort to find enough pieces of a rapidly disenigrating marriage. Alas, not enough pieces were to be found in the magical land at Pine Meadow Ranch or any of the other areas we so enjoyed earlier in our lives together. This deer painting is todays daily painting. An artist that has property at PMR took the picture of the deer, I think it's a mule deer. She allowed me to use it to make this one. I decided I wanted to change the landscape to wildflowers and trees. This is Ruths facebook page for her artwork. https://www.facebook.com/#!/RuthAndrewsVreeland.Artwork?fref=ts
Sorry, I got off track about my plans for summer.I will have Little Sanitee 2 together and will take off after Lindsay is out of school June 6th. I want to spend some time enjoying the place and painting on site.

It is to cold and dreary to work on Little Sanitee 2. I haven't seen the sun for days. Ohio is like that in the winter. Once I though all of my little solar walk lights were bad. When the sun finally came out the lights worked again. I  so look forward to spring and summer. I am not a cold weather person.
This is my art studio set up for my New Years Resolution. After thinking long and hard about what to do as my New Years goal I decided not to loose weight, learn a new language, keep my house neater or any of these unobtainable things. So here is my tiny art studio that I can take where ever I want it and do a painting each and every day, or at least several a week. Why not do what makes me happy?

looks like blogger doesn't want me to put up a picture, will try later.
edit 1: still can't upload but I found another bloggers art, really lovely one of a kind. http://creationsbycyn.blogspot.com/

New Year, New Beginning, New Life

I have temporarily given up on Little Sanitee. She is not sound enough and will take to much money to make her road worthy.  I picked this little gem up for 600.00. She's a 1972 (the year I graduated from High School) Vintage Shasta with wings. Only 10 foot long by about 6 foot wide. Some work needs done but it shouldn't cost me as much. I no longer have as lofty goals with this trailer.
This home is Little Sanitee 2. Propane tanks need mounted and a new line for the stove. Figure out what to do about the water lines. Kicking around enlarging the closet to make a bathroom with shower. My best bet will be a porta pottie and just enjoy it without a lot of extras. It sure beats tent camping for me.
The picture of the kitchen area is not mine, I apologize to whomever it belongs to as I can not give you credit. This is close to what it looks like though. I'm looking forward to baking in the stove.
