We tend to use our Thursdays in Portland with Sidney as opportunities to see some art AND to play, and it often works pretty well.  Sidney, as was his father before him, is a very good sport and we try to find interesting stuff to look at.  We headed to Portland in the usual rainstorm

and after a “No photo” moment in the car…

we mutually agreed on ART-PLAY-LUNCH-ART…we headed to Augen gallery and at the back found a nice “Rain” painting by George Johanson.  So as we were pointing the painting out to Sidney (who knows George and Phyllis pretty well) R got a phone call…from George.  Eerie?..a little…

A deal is a deal though, so we headed to the playground…

and since we had a great parking space in a neighborhood where that isn’t always possible, we skipped dinosaurs for an urban lunch (Pearl Bakery makes a very acceptable PBJ)…

and then headed to Blackfish Gallery because we were pretty sure the Robot show would delight…

“So, you’re saying I can’t touch any of these…?”

Though a variety of discussion topics presented themselves, “how do you start a collection” was at the top of the list.  “one by one”…we had our faves…

they are oddly appealing…then came nap, more play, dinner with the family and we headed home at 7:30 grateful for the light…

and another fun day…
