Ah this one is terrific! Nice architecture, it really reminds me of a francis livingston painting.

Portland? Somehow it looks french. I think it's the pink plaster with the curvy sign and lantern. When I read you had coffee across the street, I imagined being there looking at the same view. I couldn't have resisted painting the pink plaster. Great angle too.

Thanks Silvina! The morning light was amplified by the approaching rain, and the colors were terrific. I had to finish my coffee in a bit of a rush!

The angle here really gives this a wonderful sort of topsy turvy feeling. And I love the color.

Thanks Holly--I think it was that repetitious element of the staircase and shadows that caught my attention!

Thank you Don. The city of Portland makes for a steady stream of subject matter.
