This is a painting that will be in a show at City Hall. The show features natural parks that are also Portland City Parks. This is spot is very near my house, at a park called Marshall Park. When you're there, you do not feel at all like you're in the city.
The technique I used was fun. I took a floral watercolor painting that wasn't looking too great, turned it upside down, and made this watercolor painting over it.
The reception will be this Thursday, part of First Thursday art openings in Portland.
