Today we took 17 paintings to The Oak Street Hotel in Hood River Oregon for display and for sale. Click on my web site to view paintings at the Hotel along with sizes and prices. www.donnavantuyl.com
In past years I have had success showing at the Hotel and it is always nice for an artist, however, more important for me is the enthusiasm and attitude of the people. The Oak Street is one of those places where one feels immediately welcomed and the experience leaves one with a sense of warmth and generosity. It is important for me that my paintings are in such a location.
We enjoy our travels and as we have tried different types of vacation experiences we have discovered that some establishments have that elusive quality of warmth and generosity for the traveler. Places where the owners have put in that extra effort for guests. I would say that the Oak Street Hotel is one of those places. Extra details in decorating and making guests feel at home is the experience. This is not something you experience at the local chain motel, and in my experience quit rare.
Even on a budget you find those rare gems that money really cannot buy. It is in the extra care and extra effort that turns your travel into something special. Here is a link to the Oak Street Hotel and enjoy your travels. http://www.oakstreethotel.com/
