Leslie's Stuff at the Stafford

Last Friday I went to the reception for the opening of Leslie Elder's exhibit at The Stafford in Lake Oswego. She and another doctor are exhibiting their paintings on the walls of this beautiful retirement facility.

What a kick! Walking down the hall, I could see Leslie's paintings hanging on the wall straight ahead of me. Since I have worked with some of these images extensively for our website, I felt like I was greeting familiar old friends. But there was also the instant thrill of seeing new works which I haven't seen before! And the works of Dr. Rudy Stevens were, of course, new to me, and totally delightful. Plus there was wine and cheese... what could be bad??

If you didn't go on Friday, you missed out on the wine and cheese part, and also getting to see Leslie and her new super-sleek motorized cart. But you can still drop by for the next 4 weeks, and see some marvelous paintings! I recommend it.

I also think it would be a nice place for all of our ORA painters to exhibit in the future.
