June 2015 ... and our next theme is ...

After some animated discussion, we decided on "urban transitions" as our next project theme. Portland has a lot of character as seen on many of our city streets. We'll explore and look for inspiration throughout the city. 
So far, we've decided to make one piece that's maybe about 24" by 48". We've also included the necessity of one common color . . . #2 pencil yellow. It can be prominent or just a bit piece. 
In addition, we'll each do a small (12' by 16") focus piece. The focus is yet to be decided. 

Our first inspirational street walk took a group of us to Williams Ave. in north Portland. These great photos were taken by Kathy. Later that day we were lucky to be able to take a ride on the new Orange MAX line that goes across the Willamette River on Portland's newest bridge - The Tilikum Crossing, Bridge of the People. We enjoyed the beautiful new artwork along the line as well as interesting city sights.
