This painting was started on the site of Rohner’s Warehouse on Peoria Road. It is the second painting that I have posted from this site.  This is the view of their neighbors looking north.

I still have to paint their dog 🙂

This painting was partially created during the Open Studios tour. People were able to see it take form. I know those during the first weekend really wanted to see the final painting … so here it is!

Yes, it is an actual place in the Portland, Oregon area but unrecognizable it its incarnation here.

This painting is a submission for the Virtual Paint Out blog. Their area of concentration this month is Slovakia.  I thought I would add the link to the actual Google Street View scene that I used to show you what I did with the information.

Click here to see the actual place on Google Street View.  You can see that I used the bicycle, the basket, part of the man’s pose including his right arm and left leg and shoe.  I changed his sex.  I changed his left arm position as it looked like he was picking his nose, changed the package in the basket to a large dog and added a smaller dog looking at him.  I removed all the background including the second person except for a little of the curb.  I was trying for a little humor as the title of the painting hopefully suggests.
