Devin Gallery, Coeur d' Alene Idaho - first day in gallery

Pictures of Kelin wearing my hat. She works in the gallery and we became good friends. Kinda looks like a cowgirl to. Me giving her a sculpting lesson in the last photo.

Not going to be in the gallery on Saturday. Will be heading back home Sunday afternoon. I just want to thank Skip and Debbie, the owners of the Devin Gallery and Joe as well as Kelin for their overwhelming kindness to me while I was at their gallery.

Finally back. Sorry, it's just been to hard to keep up with the Blog and getting my live feed setup in the gallery is a no go. It occurred to me, that Galleries, as well as private people, may find it an infringement on their privacy if I set up a big brother type cam in Gallery. So, on my own, I've decided to not set up the cam in any galleries. I will continue to photograph and add when I'm able from the shows this summer. It's just very hard to take photo's, sculpt and answer questions in the Gallery. The drive from Tahoe to Ontario Oregon was mind bendingly boring. There were moments of interesting land features but mostly it was just a very long drive through the most desolate area of Nevada and Oregon. At one moment in by drive through Oregon, I did pass a sign that pointed down a dirt road, indicating that the grave site of Charbanneou was down this road. I just didn't have the time to go see it. Not sure which Charbanneou, Toussaint or Pomp (Jean Baptiste) where buried there. The following is a first part video of my trip to Ontario Oregon from Tahoe City California.

Here's the final leg of the trip. Ontario Oregon to Coeur d' Alene.

I'm at the Devin Gallery in Coeur d' Alene Idaho through the weekend. Then I head home on Monday.
