I'm a painter, long time painter, oils. But.. I have difficulty doing it here in my new home town in hotville.
In the winter it is cold, and I admit I could paint then, but I'm usually dealing with other stuff, and winter is short. Spring brings big winds and big sand into the house if any orifice is open. In the summer, the windows must be near shut so that the swamp cooler can work to bring temps down a few degrees. There's the matter of black widows (I had one in my kitchen), and this and that, and I don't have screen doors. I'm not used to living without real air in the house, so this is all odd to me.
I've misplaced my painting jones, but it's not entirely gone.
