Painting the Salmon Street Springs today in 95 degree heat..and in Portland Oregon...yikes. Kara Wilde, Paul Lockhart, and John Lehman were out here painting,  Roberta Hodara was painting in Keller Fountain, but the city has turned off the water in Keller Fountain, bummer, so we migrated to Salmon Street. Hot, Hot, Hot.
