Hold your horses – Mounted posse ride along rescheduled

Due to Sunday’s crappy weather, my ride along with the Pima County Sheriff’s mounted posse will be rescheduled in the near future.

The rain would have definitely wrecked the video – or at least the camera.

Since horses are on the mind, I did come up with a Nightmare painting (below) – and I will be writing about an exciting horse topic in my Friday column.

Stay tuned to Rynski’s Blogski.

    Good morning Ryn-O-rama! I love the photo of the painting! Sorry the ride was postponed.

    • Rynski says:

      hiya andrew!
      thanks for painting compliment. yeah, i was sorry ride was postponed, as well – but NOT sorry to avoid being out in the wet clammy rain. ever since i lived in oregon, rain tends to make me melt (my time in rainy oregon is also the reason i now live in tucson!).

      • Andrew Ulanowski says:

        oh dear, rainy, rainy Oregon. Ryn, I lived in Eugene and Springnfield for a season or two and I had to leave because I was hurting being without sunshine! I certainly think the beautiful weather in Arizona has me stay here.

      • Rynski says:

        you bet!
        i was in coastal brookings – and even the ocean view from my living room window, no less, couldn’t persuade me to stay in the rain.
        DEFINITELY begging for depression with that kind of weather.
        glad we both found az sun!

    That is a good painting Rynski, very well done! BTW-is that ‘Pegasus’ inspired? Looks as though Nightmare has wings. I really like this.

    • Rynski says:

      thanks, radmax. the painting was inspired, actually, by one of my friend’s shirts – she had an ornate horse on it and i wanted to see what it would look like if it were non-ornate.
      i like your pegasus take on it – much more interesting than shirt inspiration, for sure – hahah

    Of course it would rain on the ONE DAY you had planned to go on an adventure on horseback! Lol

    As with all of your art, I absolutely LOVE that Nightmare painting! 😀

    • Rynski says:

      OF COURSE! it had to rain on horseback day – think it’s the laws of physics or something  -hahha.
      thanks for art and painting compliment – and TRIPLE THANKS for kicking off my painting spree of late with your request. hope dante at the dog park and cherry red fishbowl are faring well! i’m hooked on acrylics! hahah

      • Jennatoolz says:

        They are faring marvelously! I haven’t had a chance to hang them quite yet as I’ve had a family things to deal with (up until yesterday, I’ve been in Phoenix, yuck). Tonights the night they will get hung up!! 😀

      • Andrew Ulanowski says:

        how cool you have Ryn art Jenna! I pine to be far enough up the food chain to be able to buy one! Hahaha – soon though, soon!

    Any rain we get here is worth a postponed horse ride.
    Praise the rain in the desert!

    • Rynski says:

      agreed – rain is a much needed addition – besides, it puts more water in the rillito for the dogs to romp!

      • azmouse says:

        Yes! And more beautiful sunset pics of Sawyer and Phoebe romping in the water.

      • azmouse says:

        By the way, I love the painting too and it does remind me of a Pegasus. It also replicates mosaic in my mind. Do you do any mosaic art Ryn? I just love mosaic and went through a period of making my own mosaic stepping stones for the yard. I bought cheap plates from a salvation army store and broke them. It was a fun summer project one year.

      • Rynski says:

        yes – ALWAYS!!! more photos of phoebe and sawyer – hahah.
        never tried mosaic – although wholly fascinated by it. the horse painting reminded me of one, too.
        what’s the best adhesive to use? i would mosaic with rocks, metal, broken glass, etc. and all types of debris. i def. want to give it whirl!
        bet your stepping stones are awesome.

      • azmouse says:

        I just troweled some grout onto a stepping stone, laid the broken pieces of plates on there and let that dry. Then I went back over it all with more grout, sponged them clean and once that was dry, put a little brush on shine lacquer stuff on them. They are probably about six years old now, so they’ve held up in the sun pretty well.
        You should try it. t’s lots of fun! (I emailed a few pics to ya)

      • Rynski says:

        oh, your stepping stones are AWESOME! got the pix. they are so sweet. i will def give it a try, just regular grout like the bathtub stuff…how dandy. i think i even have a tube of it leaking in a cabinet somewhere – haha.
        love it! az. with the pumpkin carving, the gingerbread house and the mosiac tiles, you’re a regular creative genius!
        thanks for the idea…i’ll do mosiac as soon as my acrylic addiction wears down…

      • azmouse says:

        Cool! I need to try painting on pieces of metal! lol

      • Andrew Ulanowski says:

        check you guys out! exchanging art – i have a friend who does mosaics for money and pretty well too.
        I agree with Mouse about the mosaic replication thingie. I think lots of what you do would translate well there Ryn.
        captcha = maryann of (Gilligan’s Island?)

      • azmouse says:

        I’m certainly not in the same league as Ryn with my crappy little DIY projects, Andrew…. but it’s nice to give an actual artist a tip on grout!

    Horses rule!    And,any Southern Arizona rain rules too!   Sorry ’bout your ride though, but I’m sure your future ride will still be lots of fun. 
    The PCSO Posse are good folks.   Glad to hear you’ll be hanging out with such a great bunch of people.   

    • Rynski says:

      thanks, marie. i def. look forward to meeting them in person. they seemed like AWESOME folks from the e-mail/phone. heck, how can you not be awesome if you volunteer for a mounted posse?
