Oregon Love and The Art Man

Rain!  Finally.  I am an Oregonian through and through.  Rainy, drizzly, sit-in-a-chair-with-a-book-and-coffee days are my favorite.  Last week, my brother and I went on our annual "Columbus Day" beach trip.  An hour and a half drive lands you at the ocean.  It was a miserable day...I think the rain was blowing sideways!  We braved it and found clam chowder, the outlet mall, the beach.  Then I discovered the magic of combining cheese and caramel popcorn!  So addicted, I may need a group.  It isn't even a new's called Chicago style.  Who knew!?

Fall is my favorite!  How can you not find this beautiful....

Today, while looking for a video on clouds...this popped up as the first choice.  It was too great not to share! (Skip to the 30 second mark to start.)

Happy Friday,


  1. I've actually watched him on TV, although it's been years. Everything is happy. :)

  2. LOVE it! I hope I don't sound creepy, but what neighborhood was that taken in (I live in Portland, that's why I ask). :) It looks familiar!

  3. Those fall pics are so beautiful!I miss fall so much-I used to live out east and then came to Texas-where we kind of skip that season. :)


  4. What a beautiful view on the way to school! I wish I could paint like him!

  5. OMG memories. Used to sit and watch him on TV... amazed that it was on TV... not able to look away. He made it all seem so easy.
    The same thing happened this time and it is so much more fun with music! haha

  6. I love the beautiful pictures! I'm jealous of anyone with a window! "They" gave me a room without one because of my problems of being distracted by birds!
