Recently four of us met up just north of Portland at Pumpkin Patch Farm on Sauvie Island, where we tried our pens at fields, the animal barn, and old farm equipment.
A couple days later on the 4th of July, my partner and I headed south to Oregon City, the oldest incorporated town west of the Rockies. I tried to capture the complicated Willamette Falls and paper mills. Willamette Falls was originally a natural wonder, but now it's an industrial cyborg designed to harness energy for the mills. Complicated but fun to draw.
