Oscar and Marcel and the resident animals complained about all but expiring from the 100 degree plus temperatures in the gallery on a sunny afternoon. West facing, the gallery heats up in the afternoon making it inhospitable to some kinds of art. Yesterday, Greg, who built the gallery, came by to create a way for the hot air to ventilate into the "attic" and then to the outside. Indeed the temperatures dropped, most welcome when normally cool Camano Island hit 80 degrees yesterday. There are about 16 hours of daylight now so relief is welcome.
