Tuesday!

Today we drove to Longview/Rainier to see George Broderick. (He owns a gallery, but he is also an artist).  In a world where many artists try to somehow fit-in in some sort of homogenous way... George stands out as completely unique. "Off-beat" has always been a good way to describe him.  We went to George's exhibit at the Broadway Gallery, had lunch at the Monticello Hotel and drank coffee at his studio. A great art day!  (Slideshow from our visit below .....or go to the direct link HERE)

Sounds like a super fabulous day to me!

Gosh, what a great day! I like George's work a lot too-thank you for showing it. I don't think I have seen that much of it before. The restaurant looked wonderful also-great murals above the bar. Wish I could just zip on up there:)

Wow, so much to see in this post. His studio looks so fun and what a beautiful show he has at the gallery. I checked out some of the other artists and wow...what a nice mix. Your collection there is lovely. I particularly love your painting Side Door and the paint brushes as well. You make me want to get out more to visit our local galleries. We don't have many, but there are little towns all around to visit too. I don't get out enough!

Thanks, Lisa, LIbby, Sherry, Polly, Sheryl and Karen. Good eye Sheryl, it is not my car, it is Georges. :)

Beautiful "Sundown." I can't view the slideshow on this iPad--will check it out on the desktop later.

That bright light that turns the whole piece into pure magic is amazing.

Been looking at the brush strokes and wondering if I will ever be able to attempt such a painting

I love the emotional quality you captured in your painting. It is beautiful.

You have the neatest things always going on in your life. I think must be a fun and art magnet!
Loved the slideshow and felt I got a little bit of culture today. Thank you.
