C.M. Russell Museum

Yours truly, April 7th, 2011

On our last day of travel home from Palm Springs we stopped in Great Falls, Montana to see Charlie Russell's Museum.  The last (first and only) time we were there was in the early 1970s, when there was a 1500 square foot museum beside his log cabin studio.  We marveled at the extensions, the collections and the grandeur of it all today.

I remember the log cabin vividly because, as is always the case, viewing the working space of a deceased artist (1864-1926) is almost sacred to me.  His easel, paints and brushes sit there as though he had just stepped out.
