Making Christmas cards

 It's fun to be crafty
If I could have found neon stamps, my life would be complete.

More from the Portland road trip

 View from the Vista House that overlooks the Columbia River Gorge

One of the many waterfalls at the Gorge. 

 ...and another.  We saw 4 large ones in all.  There were also tiny ones that you would run into.  It's like the whole mountain just leaks water.  You could spend days exploring all of them but it was wet and my mom can only handle so much.

My opening at Breeze Block with the gallery director Paige in the middle and one of her interns on the right (I feel bad that I cannot remember her name for the life of me)

The Chinese Garden in downtown Portland.

It had lots of tiny trees

Little Bird Bistro in Portland.  They had a silver gilded ceiling.  It was amazing.  But I am still kicking myself for not getting a picture of the Ace Hotel lobby where we stayed.  

Boat installation at the Portland Art Museum.  

Billings MT

None of my pictures from in the mountains turned out.  The few that I took were either blurry or not interesting.  It was difficult to capture the grandeur that you feel driving through these tall mountains at 80 mph so instead here are cows somewhere in WY.

Portland Show at the Breeze Block Gallery...

My road trip to Portland was amazing.  1900 miles through mountains and rolling plains.  And Portland was better then I ever imagined.  It will indeed hold a special place in my heart.

After I finished getting ready for the group show at Fox Tax Gallery that opens next month I finally made the painting of the old bank (pre-remodel) in my original hometown of Anamosa Iowa.  My dad commissioned it and I had made it with oil on canvas which was a disaster since all I had was a bad computer print from an old camera phone picture.  I rather like the whimsical nature of this version and I may try some more now.  Anyways, who wouldn't like a rainbow sidewalk.

This is the view from inside my utopia box (barbie size) that I've been playing with.  I love Mylar and tinsel but as a whole it has yet to transcend from just being a pile of cheap crap that is hot glued to the inside of a box.

Now back to work

Virgin Islands

 Coki Beach
 Tiny cay on our way to St John
 The American house Ruins on top of a small mountain that over looks on of the only ports in St John.  Tortola is in the distance.
 You can see St. Thomas way in the distance and one of the St john mountains to the left.
 Petroglyphs at a Taino spiritual sight
 It never rains on the south side so it is full of dead cactus and aloe
 Trunk swimming pool ever
 Cruz Bay
Cinnamon Bay has the only waves
