I was happy to see this beautiful gopher snake this afternoon. Our mouse population is having a boom,
Yesterday we celebrated three years with Sailor with a nice pheasant hunt. He was joined by Bliss and Phanny. Tasha stayed home with the puppies. We’ll have to make it up to her.
Wow! I’m stunned. When I catch my breath I’ll have more to say. Check out Tim’s post on the auction art competition for forestry education…
The Sierra Cascade Logging Conference is all over, but for the clean up. The Forestry Education Fund Auction was last night and it was a booming success. The final result of the entire fund-raiser was north of $100,000. Now if you’ve been following our blogs, you know that Mary (Sneaking Bliss) and I provide original art, […]
Here’s my entry for the Head to Head/His and Hers Auction. Tim (The Forester Artist) and I will be competing at the Lumberjack Banquet & Education Auction on Friday, Feb. 10, 2017. This auction fundraiser supports the Sierra-Cascade Environmental and Resource Fund. This non-profit educates the public, students, and teachers about the wise management of our forests.They provide scholarships for local students interested in careers in the industry. Many of the programs supported are aimed at educating the urban regions of California, about practices that assure the health of our forests.
They also sponsor:
- Logging Conference Education Day
- In-Woods Demonstration
- FFA Forestry Competition
Hey, Tim, where’s yours?
I’ve found that when I paint a piece with strong shadows, it helps to do a rough shadow map. I usually rough them out in pencil. Then in the spirit of competing with Tim, The Forester Artist, I thought a shadow map using his pens would be a good bet.
Shhh. Don’t tell.
Once again, Tim (The Forester Artist) and I are competing head-to-head in an auction for the Sierra-Cascade Environmental and Resource Fund. He soundly defeated me last year at the Education Auction Dinner. I hope to turn the tables this year.
Tim thinks he knows what I’ve been working on. But, I’ve been concealing my piece until it’s ready for the reveal. He sees bits and pieces, here and there. I see no need to give him a heads up as to what I’ve been working on. Do you?
Fun times at dock jumping class with the crew from Shasta Splash Dogs. Phanny and Tasha build confidence as Bliss and Sailor take to flying off the dock with style.
