    well, we're sitting in this coffee shop today and the owner comes over, knowing claire's an artist, and asks her if she'll display her artwork for the next month. it will be up for sale as well, which is pretty cool. she's sold only one piece of work before. i'll post up some pics of her work sometime soon. she's super stoked, particularly since the business owner saught HER out, she wasn't even trying to get the business. :bow::bow::bow: she'll be displaying mostly paintings, but probably some photography too. :D

    Cool. Congrats! My sister's ex-boyfriend paints abstracts. He had an art show back in '04 and walked away with $3500. Make sure you at least get her to buy you dinner or something with the loot...

    ok, so it's during the month of february. i don't have the address off hand, but the name is in my last post. you'd take 205 south almost all the way to where it meets up with I5 again. exit at the 10th street exit, which is the second exit after crossing the willammette river. its in the city of west linn. anyway, after you exit, take a left at the light and go under the freeway, go thru one light and take your next left. it's across the parking lot from the mcdonalds, which is across the street from chevron. they've got outstanding coffee... and they're not far from a mcmenamins! :)

    Well, if those clowns are going, I guess that means I have to as well! :D

    Fumes and YOOB, let me know when you're going! A weekend is the only time I'd be able to make it down.

    well, the idea is to post up general prices for those guys who might come down just so they can know what to expect if they are actually interested in buying the artwork. that being said, i don't want this post to look anything like a for sale post. so, anyone interested in photos/paintings/etc can pm me with regard to that.

    confedneck - pm on it's way... :D
