While the much of the country (and world) suffer in heat and humidity, we’re having a cool and somewhat rainy summer in the Pacific Northwest. I drove to pastoral Sauvie Island for a day of painting. It was very quiet and I only saw a few other people in this more remote part of the island.  The sky was ovecast much of the day but no rain fell.

On the drive out I passed many heavy industrial areas along the river that I’d really like to paint in but it’s all private property. I can’t seem to find a good vantage point to paint the port from. There’s some really cool stuff across the river from the tiny town of Linton but no good vantage point that I could find.

  1. Hi Sue,
    For some reason your comment was directed to the spam bucket. Glad I caught it before emptying. Thanks for the compliment.
