portland is one of my favorite cities, so we rented a car
and drove down for a road trip during our trip to seattle.
(above is some beautiful little alley & a red tree on ne alberta).

a mural inside upper playground by herbert baglione,
one of my favorite artists.

then another one (the guy at UP told me about) outside off e. burnside...
his shapes & details are so amazing!

awesome hand-carved sign at the hotel we stayed.

after having the above bacon maple bar donut,
along with stumptown coffee (how touristy of us),
we drove up randomly up burnside to the NW side.
we ended up going all the way up the hill (near washington park?)
and pulled over on this beautiful aqueduct :

it looked like something out of a fairy tale, all the houses
and broken spearhead like things.
i loved seeing so much green in the midst of the winter.

we drove up to seattle to catch our flight (& dinner) afterward,
and all the food we'd eaten are documented here.

sorry it took so long to post these photos...
today is the first day i feel a bit normal (cold & stomach virus),
but hopefully i'll get back to the swing of things soon now.
some continued ink plays and maybe landscape studies!
