"Impromptu day"... I met with Steve Kleier for coffee this am at Bipartisan Cafe. He is such a great plein air urban-scape guy. "Hey, Let's paint right on this street"...he said (and so we did). I want to go back to that same spot again. We set up right next to a row of trash cans.
Then!...at noon I threw in with some other plein air pals at Laurelhurst park. We had a great model named Sarah (or Sara?). I had only a 16x12 panel with me so I opted to concentrate on a portrait. It was just a perfect day. (Thanks to Dave Burbach for the photos)!
