VooDoo Donuts Portland Oregon September 26, 2018

Plein air painting VooDoo Donuts Portland Oregon September 26, 2018, with Paul Lockhart and John Lehman. We were run off from Ankeny Pedestrian Plaza for loitering. Apparently plein air painting is loitering. Who knew. But I did get a video of Paul's oil pastel before we were run off.
