Some more trailers

I don't know why I'm so into trailers right now. There is something so appealing about the idea that you could just put a whole life into one of these things--a microresidence, a microcosm, a snowglobe on wheels. And Oregon is just full of these retro beauties.

More Minis

One of the women from my art guild asked for some small pieces of art to decorate the Christmas tree at the gallery we have at the End of the Oregon Trail Interpretive Center. I decided to use my mini-masterpiece canvases to do a few images from Oregon City.
Here is my favorite little trailer:

And here are two views of the Oregon City Municipal Elevator:
