I haven't been lazy...just damn busy!

Today I dropped by to see Malia and
her family and also to see Malia's
newest painting! Of course, I think her
best pieces are her darling children!
Such as Mazy and Eliana...kids in a box!
Just add water....hahahah
















Eliana in a box.....

















Mazy had the brilliant idea of these photos!

















close up of Malia's painting....





















Malia's gorgeous painting for Andaluz's
new space in downtown Portland

















Russell is pondering his City Council logo
at Etta and Jeff's house.
Etta is doing Russell's artwork and layout
for his signs and brochures. Thanks Etta!










Meanwhile Pierizat opened her
birthday gift from us...
A doll from Puerto Montt Chile!





















A Secret Garden door found
in Lake Oswego's 1st Addition
I love this neighborhood with
all it's eclectic older homes.




















A few weeks ago we went to
Alberta Street Pub to listen
to some good finger picking
music. This guy was from
St Loius Missouri-he was great!





















I am learning how to make panorama photos
This was taken not far from our house.










Grace is here visiting and she
and I went shopping with Mushu
He is such a good dog-really like a cat!
Which means he likes being inside sleeping!





















Barbara, Russell and Susie at Elizabeth Leach's
gallery in the Pearl. Susie flew in from Florida
for 10 days to see all of us.















Grace and her dad in front of our garden.
The garden has a lot of sunflowers
planted by the birds.
Grace is here for a few days before
she leaves for New York.
She and Radu have a nice apartment
in Manhattan.
A good reason to visit New York!
