Auntie Bridgett got a lovely offer last month to display her art in Moonstruck Chocolate, a pretty candy shop in a fancy shopping neighborhood. It is on 23rd Street in the northwest part of Portland, and is nicknamed The Trendy-Third. We visited it a few weeks ago and she knew there was a lot of wall space, so she took a lot of pieces!
The walls were bare when we got there. Jennifer, the lady in charge of the place, was very friendly and offered coffee and chocolates to keep our spirits up.
Since I have helped Bridgett hang art many times, we work well together, and the morning went smoothly. Deciding on placement, measuring, measuring again, putting in nails, leveling and labeling each of the twenty or so pieces took all morning and by lunch, we were hungry!
We walked down to The Fireside, where we had dinner last year. Sadly, they had been vandalized, with big windows broken, but they were open for business as charming and delicious as ever. Auntie Bridgett enjoyed their Delicata squash salad, and I had a grilled cheese sandwich ( with cheese outside as well as inside). So yummy!
We finished up at Moonstruck and headed for home, and I realized how tired I was. I stretched out in the couch and napped, being lazy for the rest of the day.
Art is exhausting!
