A little wetter would be wickedly good...

By now you've probably heard (after all, the weather is a big part of our news) that this winter is going to see the El Nino effect on the lower half of California.  Awesome.  I'm already enjoying some of the more interesting weather displays, like those I saw the year that I first moved to the desert. That year we had a whopping 14" of rain, as opposed to our usual 4".  I'm hoping that this winter we'll get something in the same region, we sure need it.
(Note to self:  Inspect roof and apply tar to weak spots.  Note to rain gods:  please** not on weekends!)
We've already enjoyed a couple good thunder storms, and the last week has been deliciously cloudy and of course with the huge distances I can see from here there's often the opportunity to enjoy
my favorite cloud, virga.  The virga above was from the storm on the 15th.  You'll likely be able to see a rendition of it in my booth later this month.
The other two new things in the world of skyscapes this month.  First, I've joined sm'Art studio in La Quinta.  Here you'll be able to purchase gift and suitcase-sized works in both acrylics/oils and refractured watercolors, and books.  Also, I'll be holding a couple classes there each month.  Second, I'm adding gift certificates to the list of things available in my booth/home studio.  So, if you know someone who likes my work, but not sure what to get them, the gift certificate could be the answer.  Or, if you know what you want but it's a little outside the budget, now is the time to start dropping hints for your own stocking stuffers.
