Portlanders, used to months of complaining about rain, only look around and whisper it: "We need a little rain." We've had days of sunshine and shadows, blue skies, and warm weather. It's odd to still be watering plants and wearing clothes without hoods. An especially wonderful thing about this weather is it creates more opportunities for sketching outdoors.
The farmer's market had strong shadows and falling leaves.
It's been warm enough to sit outside of Zupans and draw the top of the Pied Cow...
or sketch a colorful SE Portland house that reflects the values and politics of its owners.
