It’s like making a Giant Painting…

…overheard while eating chicken soup on a tuesday night…and the rest of the sentence was, ” but it takes three years of your life and a ton of money.” Michael was referring to the renovation of White Church Gallery, specifically the altarpiece we’re working on. This past weekend was all about putting some wood up […]

Friends and Neighbors

Who’s that sneaking around back, hooking up… ELECTRICITY???  Power? Lights? All that comes with the modern age? Far out! Electricity is surely on the checklist. Light, heat, and TUNES!     But nature is still in charge. Look at the beautiful art it makes on the INSIDE of the window! Friends and soon to be neighbors […]
