The Gorge and Beyond!

So this past weekend I went to the Maryhill Art Museum and it is about two hours outside of Portland and literally out in the middle of no where. It sits up on the edge of the gorge overlooking the Columbia River. The view was simply amazing, but the Museum looked a little like a jail. It is a concrete poured mansion with bars on all the windows.... Granted they have some amazing art works inside like some Rodin pieces. I think the highlight for me was the scuplture garden with some modern pieces. BUT... lurking between the scupltures there were several crowing and skwaking peacocks. Pointed claws... Beady eyes... sharp beaks...

So I have been working feverishly getting ready for 1st Thursday in the Pearl.. organzing.. working on the display.. And it's supposed to be 90 degrees tomorrow!
