Portlandia

I got in some sketching over the Holidays up in Portland-one of my favourite American cities.

 View from the hotel window downtown
 The famous food trucks of Portland



 Cameron's Books-great for 2nd hand treasure hunting!

 Portland apparently has the highest number of strip clubs per capita!

Just visible behind The Living room cinema is 'The World's Greatest Bookstore'- Powell's Books

 The Art Museum had some impressive Greek sculpture in their 'Body Beautiful' exhibition

 The Modern Art section had a great range of sculpture; Hepworth, Moore, Rodin, Lipchitz

 And last but not least the people of Portland

Tremendous! I visited Portland last year (from UK). These sketches reminded me of so much: view from my hotel, the food trucks, bookstores. I didn't see any strip joints though!
