Scenes from Door County

Charlene's Gallery Ten - Gills Rock
This is where my pear series is hanging out
(oooo bad pun)
hopefully they will find their way to good homes.
I love the way the girls arranged them.

This hall is near the front entry way.

On the second floor of the gallery
my larger copper pieces grouped together.
The past few years I've taken to making clocks.
Fun and useful. 

Do you remember this quote?
It's an old nursery rhyme....
You have probably heard it if you've watched
"Singing in the Rain"

Copper is so hard to photograph,
it looks really cool in person.

One of my favorite bible verses

The Bible in 50 Words
I thought it would fun to try to illustrate the text.

Paul is combing the shoreline for agates.
He a bit of a rockhound...
This is the Green Bay side of Door County.
It's just beautiful here.
We found a sweet Inn to stay at.
The tourist season doesn't begin until this coming weekend.
We were fortunate to have missed the crowds.
Many of the shops and eateries weren't open yet.
It was wonderfully quiet!
Perfect for a getaway.

Evidence of spring.....
the uncurling of ferns

Paul and I were trying to figure out what these were.
They are tulip leaves.
Neither of us had ever seen markings like these on tulips.
Who knew?

Paul and I went for a loooong walk one morning.
Isn't this a cool cedar tree?
The gnarls make fabulous shapes.

A grand Victorian house on the top of a hill.
Leaded glass....the whole bit.

Lilly of the Valley just getting ready to open.
oh, that fragrance!
Those few days were over all too soon.
Though I feel refreshed
I would have loved to stay longer.
We didn't have time to go to the park.
Penninsula State Park has terrific hiking and biking trails.
So much to do and so little time...
Always leave something for next time, right?

Hi Chris,
You are such an awesome artist. I love how your stuff is hung in that gallery. I did a lemon picture yesterday. At first I didn't like it, now I do. Your trip looked fun. Take care. Ellen
