Side trip.

Garden of the Gods

Near Salida CO.

We took a short week long trip to CO just before Christmas to help some friends move in to their new place.  I did mange to squeeze in some time for 2 paintings in plein air.  These are the 2 locations I painted.  I kept thinking, IF we had the airstream finished.....

Before and After...

 The day we brought the trailer home.  Yicks.  Serious oxidation and scum.
 Today, a new shiny tire cover that just may convert in to a table!

Stainless cladding on drawer in bathroom.

Derald is covering a lot of the old wood with stainless in the bathroom.  It will really look sharp when he has it complete.  He is an excellent 'craftsman' and ARTIST.  And I am proud of him!

Martin's Apprenticeship

 Precise measuring required.
 All fingers accounted for.  No cuts...
Martin did a great job with snips cutting miters on stainless steel!

Dressing up for Christmas.

There was a little wind that made it a challenge to take a night photo of the green chili lights on the airstream!

Happy Happy Happy

We have so much to celebrate!  We have both had birthdays in this past week.  Thanksgiving was a lovely dinner and gathering with friends and family.  Today was Derald's very first day of RETIREMENT!!!!  He hung up his snips as of Dec. 1, 2010.  He didn't take a day off, but has continued to work on the airstream. Tomorrow promises warmer weather, so he is making hay while the sun shines.  If you think you have seen progress on this baby, just wait!  He will accomplish so much I'll have a hard time keeping up with photos of the work.
