Kelly Point Park oil studies

I’ve always liked the sketches I did at this park back in 2009 and posted  HERE and HERE and have intended to get back here to paint more.

According Wikipedia, the site of this park, at the confluence of the Wilamette River and Columbia Slough, was named for New Englander Hall Jackson Kelley, who tried, unsuccessfully, to establish a city at the site in 1834.  The surrounding area is pretty industrial, with a Port of Portland Marine Terminal right next door.

  1. Bahar, thank you for visiting and taking the time to comment. I’m glad you like the work.

    Hello, Rene. It’s always nice to hear from you. The top painting is 12.7 cm x 25.4 cm and the lower one is 25.4 cm x 30.48 cm. I suppose it’s rude of us Americans to label paintings using measurements that only we make use of. Thanks for your kind remark.
