CALIFORNIA SAND HILLS STUDY Daily Painting #809

CALIFORNIA SAND HILLS STUDY

Oil on Panel / 6 x 6 Inches

If you would like to own this painting, just email your bid to: farnsworthgallery.newmex.com

There are giant, white wind generators, or as some would have it, bird choppers, all atop these hills, now. I chose to paint this little study of the hills as i remeber them from previous trips between Palm Springs and Los Angeles. I don't know enough, yet, to take sides in the argument for or against these modern windmills, but the hills are equally as interesting with or without them. Maybe I'll include them in another painting someday.

Most of the day was spent attempting to resolve the issues with my email. Not much luck, so far. Will try again tomorrow. Wish me luck.

ADIOS, AT&T

This will be a short post because when I finally got over to Verizon today, they were closed until 2:45 for lunch. I had not been terribly impressed with the service there on my first visit, so I decided to go to Santa Fe to make the switch from AT&T. Three hours of drive time, two and a half hours with Verizon, a few minutes in Best Buy, dinner and some grocery shopping has left me with a shortened evening. The good news is that the switch seems to have gone without a hitch. I traded in our old phones for two new phones and a new 860L mifi device. Got out, after a mail in rebate, forty bucks ahead. I was very satisfied with AT&T. No complaints. Good coverage, no problems with their tech support. But there is no AT&T coverage in Taos, so they decided since I’m a fairly heavy user, they would just as soon drop me as a customer. This has been a major inconvenience, but I have hopes that I will be even more pleased with Verizon. We’ll soon find out.

RANCHOS MOON Daily Photograph #1627

Just a snapshot, but this was the view from our kitchen door a few nights ago, and I felt like sharing it with you. Enjoy.

Oh, by the way, we ran through a beautiful cloudburst around Tesuque on our way to Santa Fe, and just miss another on our way home. Love the rain. We need it.
