We didn't know if Mom's septic was hooked to the sewer, problems with the paperwork. So we had the Missoula Water System come over for a Septic Dye Test! I imagined a big fat guy with a flashlight, my drawing. Instead some cool folks poured bright red dye in her toilet several times with flushes, and the nice guy down the street with a mirror pointed to see the color announced, "Yes. Sewer." Great idea with the mirror! Never Say Dye.

I broke out the gouache paint, iridescent watercolor medium, and Arteza brush pens for my submission to the Missoula Art Museum Auction this year. "Turkey in the Snow" drypoint etching. Hope it is accepted. I have not had much time to be artistic this year...for some reason(!) but plan to finish one Osprey etching very soon. Here I am using my first painted etching as a reference, trying to remember how I did it in 2019.

Nico the poser patiently sits by my metal Pheasant sculpture in the front yard for a photo, Western Larch a-turnin'. We planted these 20 years ago and one even had a magpie nest in the top this spring. They sure add bright colors as the needles turn yellow and drop (deciduous conifers, to impress your friends.)

Thanks to those that joined us last night at the Artists' Shop, Glenn Parks and Marlies Borchers and family here. I would have posted another reminder yesterday but our internet was out for a few days, courtesy SpeedConnect. Unbelievable. Anyway, up all month!

Back to Missoula's finest, the Artists' Shop on N. Higgins downtown! Bev Beck Glueckert displays her printmaking masterpieces, Marlies Borchers her unique ceramic wallhangings, and I have 8 etchings, plus one 6 foot Peregrine sculpture. In the past I have displayed bird photos, and now drypoint prints with the opening reception this "First Friday" from 5 until 8. Up all October.
