Big Root

Donna photographed this massive spruce root at Jerry's rentals.

It's out in the weather. It needs to be cared for and turned into the art it deserves to be.

It will be expensive as raw material, but using it for art will more than pay for it.

(Donna: Can you see what Charles Forlines would do with it?).

Drumming Along

We've put in a handsome new stove. Oh, it's so nice and warm! This is on one end of the gallery hall. We have the biggest living room in Clallam Bay.

We've had a drumming instructor here for three classes.

Sue is sitting in a rocking chair and pounding out a samba rhythm by the stove.

Bob Fisher's dad did a very German panel of the characters from Goethe's Faust. Bob also has a panel of the Four Horsemen. Sue calls it the "Panel of the Apocalypse."

The First Annual Plant Show on the 10th was a big hit. In 2008, it will be the Wildflower Show.

The back part of the house is becoming a home. Now Sue's got a bedroom she can lock up with the cat. Yes, Cleo is sticking around -- especially since five pounds of cat food were purchased for her. Drew -- Diana's son -- calls her "Tinkerbell."

"Does Cleo have her own chair?" we were asked.

"Cleo has all the chairs!"

There's an awesome double-paned window waiting to go up in the hall.

"It's a process," says Sue.

Sue's been living in a fifth wheel kindly loaned her by Kathleen Haney. Looks like it will be finding a buyer, soon.

Three Sisters Features

We have so many neat features in the building. Full Photo Stream

One of them is Cleo, the Gallery Cat. She belongs to the neighbor, but she's voted herself an official position as gallery greeter. She shows up about once a month. If you're lucky, you'll get to meet her. If we have a party, you'll meet her for sure!

This hallway, that leads back to what will become the treatment rooms, is framed with decorative edging we got from the old Woody's restaurant -- the same place that gave us the rootball. That peach paint? Another serendipitous discovery from Parker Paint's back room. Everything's just coming together.
