A Brief Note 26DEC2011

Hello Peoples!

I hope everyone had a wonderful ChristmaChanuKwanSaturnalia weekend!  My family celebrated Christmas in style! Christmas Eve: presents, lasagna, and midnight mass with The Bride’s ancestors.  Christmas morning: Orange icing biscuits, caramel coffee, and presents under the tree at home. Christmas Day? Fried chicken and presents with my ancestors, as well as a visit with Girl1 and the G1+1up (pronounced “gittyup”).  Christmas evening: movies on the couch, leftovers and then I retire to the tub to relax with my new bath spa water jet.  THE perfect place to write a newsletter. :)

As most places were closed this weekend, there was PRACTICALLY no construction on Oasis.  We did manage to plan out the model dais and begin working on the plenum for the central heat and air.  I have the week off so we are planning to get tons done this week.  I’ll let you know how that goes.  This time of year we are ALL severely limited on fundage so we may be building with used pallets.  If you would like to help with that, you can go to artisticbiker.com and look for the DONATE button on the right side column and donate what you can.  If you can’t do that, please share this newsletter with everyone you know to help get the word out.  That helps more than you know.  Or better yet, Click Here to Join! artisticbiker.com/membership and help promote the arts in rural Oklahoma.

If you have any announcements you would like made in the newsletter or tweeted about incessantly, drop me a line and I’ll toot your horn for ya.  ;)  There were no announcements this week.

This week’s password: peace

The Classroom site is http://www.ustream.tv/channel/oasisgalleryok

Drawing Class: TOOLS! – Tuesday night 6pm central. This week I want to discuss what all those dang pencils are about! Charcoal pencils, graphite pencils, colored pencils, sticks & stones!  2B or not 2B will be answered on Tuesday night’s drawing class.

Painting Class: Hydrant III – Wednesday night 6pm central. This week, I’m going to finish the hydrant watercolor.  I will decide then whether to use it as a color study for a larger painting, or add a more illustrative look to it and keep it as a watercolor sketch.
