Portland on Monday

I made a 3 day trip to Portland to visit a friend.  This is my record from Monday 2014 0324  Photos are here.

On the way south, I stopped at Point Defiance Park.  I wanted to sketch cherry trees but hadn’t wanted to join the throngs of people at UW over the weekend.  I’d found on line that there were supposed to be cherry trees there.  I found one.  I sketched it!

Then on for our self-Guided tour of Grimm locations!  More on that later but all the photos are here.

I checked into my room at the  cMenamin’s Kennedy School, which is just a few blocks from my friend’s home.  Later in the evening, I had a hard cider in the Boiler Room bar.  It was exactly that in the original school.  Did a sketch from my 3rd floor vantage point.

  1. Love the park, and especially the boiler room – all those pipes, great! Maybe you were inspired by the hard cider too ;)
