What we did on our month-long vacation

Lets see, Central Oregon for a few days, NY/CT/RI for a week, plus shorter day trips around OR & WA. Back East, saw the NY Botanical Gardens (thanks to Dr. Russ's recommendations), the Cloisters (it's just about my most favorite place in the world), the Frick Collection, the American Museum of Natural History (a close 2nd favorite), the Breakers, the 'summer cottage' of the Vanderbilts, and drove up to Albany to visit some friends. It was not an action packed trip, which was just fine for us.

I also managed to work on a new business card. I'm just about out of my gocco-printed cards and haven't had time to print any more, so I finally just had them printed at psprint.com, which I can recommend (and it was REALLY reasonably priced). They did the postcards for the Relay Replay show at JWSC back in December and I was really happy with them. The actual card is a bit darker, but here is the design. I used a detail from my last painting for the background:

I like the card. A month long vacation condensed into 1 short paragraph. Still better than I did. I still haven't got around to post anything about our over a month long trip to OR! I've been ask several times by Amy when are we going to go back already. She was really disappointed that she couldn't tag along this time. I said I'd ship her over. BTW, there's this T-shirt and book which I was going to give you personally last year, but manage to forget up to this point.

Oh, and I get to go to the Cloisters in September! I've never been to NYC, and I won't have much time AT ALL, but I shall make time for the Cloisters. I've always wanted to go, ever since I knew it existed.

If I could visit just one place in NYC, that's where I'd go always -- the Cloisters! You can spend a whole day there, between the exhibits and the gardens. And then there's the park, too. Try to go on a weekday so it's less crowded.
