A painting by completed on April 25, 2013

As we went over the bridge to exit Route 5 to our Portland destination there was a great view of Mount Hood and the harbor. A few days later, I put my paint backpack on and hopped on my bicycle to cycle the mile to the top of the bridge on the bike path. For security, I chained the bike to the bridge railing and had a perfect spot to paint. Of course, I had lots of lookers - walkers, cyclists and passengers in cars creeping along in rush hour traffic. My first top of the bridge painting!
