Pink Umbrella, Part Deux

Weather-wise it was an intermittently rainy day today...that's Portland (and I like it)!  Appropriately, I made some improvements/adjustments to my pink umbrella painting.  Earlier today I joined Carrie on Clinton street for some neighborhood sketching. First we visited People's Food Cooperative and then we wound up at NoHo's Hawaiian Cafe. See our results HERE. Well, that's my report for Monday, whatz your report?!

I like this genre of your immense repetoire. Dark rainy city streets with ambiguous figures, often with their backs to the viewer... like the one that was at Matthew's, too. really, really emotionally evocative.

Love the pink umbrella and the woman in heels. I think the woman is being escorted by her chauffeur.

Your pieces set such a wonderful mood, mysterious, evocative, and dare I repeat "mysterious?" Love this one Celeste!

I love your umbrella paintings! Always both atmospheric and welcoming at the same time. I'd make some of my own but we only have sun! ;) I love the lady's silhouette - it draws me in.

Many aren't aware of how dark it can be at mid morning in the rain. You caught that just right.
