Gallery Boy here, reporting in from work on Main Street, Ouray. It's Sunday—which happens to be my Friday—and it's raining, and it's slow. I got a kick out of the little Tyke in the lead photo—zooming through the grass, Frisbee in hand, looking for "game," apparently. Those darn dandelions kept tripping him up, though. "Somebody needs to mow this grass."
I am surrounded by Fine Art, so if you are in the neighborhood bring your deep pockets and help feed a starving artist…and a Gallery Boy. :) Once upon a time there were as many as four galleries in Lovely Ouray. Only two remain, tho a few gift shops carry a smattering of local artwork. Bobbie's watercolors are prominently represented in Bear Creek, and in the "Colorado Room" of the Wildflower Boutique. Most artists create far more art than they sell. I've always wondered what they do with it, just let it pile up around them? or let their kids deal with the overproduction after the funeral? I'm thinking we should have a garage sale and sell it for pennies on the dollar, or by the pound, then go blow the wad on Scrap Cookies at Mouses Chocolates. :))
Anyway, as you can tell, a slow day in Ouray. Rain in June is rare so we'll take it. Afternoon monsoons start up in early July—flashes of blinding light followed by long rolls of thunder. I hope to be wading knee-deep in alpine wildflowers come July…way above timberline…making "trivial" Scenic Postcard Porn for the Faithful, not to mention a couple of sanctimonious "sinners" who like to sneak peeks behind closed and locked doors. What a rush that must be. On more than one occasion, I have seen the "pious one" actually photographing wildflowers and mountains, and have the photos to prove it. Some day I might have to "out" his hypocrisy. Hee hee.
May the views out your "Imax" wrap you in serenity and bolster your mood :))
