Painting Fremont Bridge and Centennial Mills December 7, 2017

Painting the Fremont Bridge and Centennial Mills in Portland Oregon December 7, 2017. Windy and cold outside, but we painted until the shade caught up with us and the wind shifted and blew over my easel. Oops.  Kara Wilde, Paul Zegers, and John Lehman braved the cold to paint the cityscapes.

Kara and John and the bridge.
