Shadow Gadecki Lee • Storm Shadow (AKC)
We lost this beautiful fellow last week.
He was very sick: diabetic ketoacidosis
He was failing very quickly. He was drinking a lot of water and peeing a lot more than normal and throwing up a lot. Poor guy. We did the hardest thing, and chose euthanization. We could not bare to see him suffer any longer. No real cure that would work for him. It all happened so fast.
We are heartbroken, it will take us a while to get used to this empty house. He was a beautiful dog with many fine qualities. He was also a very difficult dog in many ways. We gave him the best life we could. He was 10 years old. Thankfully the end was a peaceful sleep with us beside him, in his own home.we miss him so much.

It is a weird time to have a show, but if you are in Portland, the gallery is set up for social distancing, and very inviting.
You can also see the show online @ Guardino Gallery, and if you have a chance to take a look—either way, I hope it will make you smile.
Thank you!
I hope all is well with you.

This doggie-guy named Lincoln was staring at me at the Jazz Fest the other eve in St Johns, PDX. He is a people magnet. I did everything I could to resist him, but as he was leaving I got to say hello.

With the help of Brad, this one is finally looking better.

Martin Puryear and Mark Pascal have the same initials. My friend Mark Pascal compiled and wrote MARTIN PURYEAR / MULTIPLE DIMENSOINS, about the wonderful sculptor, Martin Puryear’s work as a consummate printmaker.
