  1. Thanks for the input, the receding lake levels and dock issues preclude I think this kind of service unless it was hovercraft. But aren'the they terribly noisy?
  2. That image is an oil on wood painting called Chapala Boats that I've recently completed here in Chapala, which I was showing since there was some question about my skill set or experience. There are more images at billyking.com including mural images. Here's a picture of my studio in Chapala. I'm not getting any actual paint donations and time is running out for this season. Any suggestions?
  3. Painted white, thick metal cage with lockable gate, this is custom made to fit over your CFE meter. Screw holes for attaching to your exterior wall. $25.00 Image won't upload pm me if interested, will send pik by email.
  4. Come and get it, used but not to muchy. $30. FILE WON'T UPLOAD SO NO PICTURE. Pm me and I'll send image.
  5. Has there ever been a water Taxi service between chapala and Ajijic? Would it make economic sense to have such a service? Pier to Pier service would certainly take the increased hassle of going from one to the other.
  6. Thanks everyone. We've created a great reference thread on this issue. Through vigorous plunging I got the line free, yes there was blockage. To celebrate I bought one of those blue disks to "clean" the toilet bowl with each flush.
  7. Here is a work sample. Just about everything to shoot is on a hollow core door @ 3ft x 7ft.......
  8. Hotels can that smell. I cover the drains and voila, odor gone!
  9. Yes I have 6 or more large murals to my credit, indoor/outdoor. I have scaffolding but the walls i.ve selected would require little more than board on bucket. I want to do a simple two color muralph@ml.com.mx on first wall, a black outline piece so the two colors are black and the wall color. I.don't like to use a terra cotta color for the background on this. My mural work borders on the cartoonist, I think it will be fine. The second site just up the block is a longer rectangle, the first one is a square. The 2nd one I'm thinking a boats on the lake abstract, will be able to use small cans of donated color here. Normally I use 1 Shot sign enamels. Remind me to bring a bunch next trip. Dick Blick has them. Will last decades outdoors. The donated paint won't last, that's OK, a few years is fine. Then either retouch the original or white out and do a new one.
  10. Anyone got their camera with them who has shot fine art? Maybe have a tripod. Or likes to produce short videos. Amateur or professional. I'm ready at my painting studio in Chapala. Excellent natural light. Final goal giclee/Iris print editions of existing oils. billyking.com
  11. And the lake is back...or way up compared to the last few years.
  12. I'm gearing up to paint a couple exterior wall murals in the next month. The location (s) are fronting the Tianguis street in Chapala, A. OBREGON. I'm asking for paint donations of any exterior paints. Any colors. Any sizes. I have several murals in the Pike Place Market Seattle for refrence. I'm Ready to start! Crowdfunding encouraged.
  13. I bought a snake once but it only goes about 2 meters max. The murat acid idea will try. By the way a piece of old brick will remove toilet bowl stains.
  14. Looking to connect with graffiti busters to get some paint for a couple murals I'm planning to paint on the Tianguis street in Chapala. Basically the donation is for the primary coat. Or if they have any paint to let go of. Recently finished an interior mural in Melaque with donated paint. I live in Chapala.
