|Portsmouth, OH 1/2014|
I spent the week in Portsmouth and Columbus, Ohio. Yes I traveled there for work regardless of the freezing temperatures and the possibility that I may be blown away and never be seen again.
Because of frigid temperatures I stayed indoors BUT I was able to see the beautiful artwork of Robert Dafford from the comfort of my car.

Most of the town was closed by the time I was able to venture out. If you look closely you will see the icy road.
|Hook & Ladder|
The gloomy weather had no effect on the realistic images portrayed in these murals. Look at the vivid colors and the many details included in each.

The flood impacted the city and the surrounding townspeople.

I encourage you to cruise by these wonderful works of art if you find yourself in this part of the country. I was really glad I did. I was greeted with kind words and hospitality everywhere I went. I must mention the pork chop sandwich I had for lunch in Portsmouth and the mouthwatering Amish food at Der Dutchman in Plain City -YUM!!!
