I had a chance to explore a part of Portland I rarely visit: Interstate Avenue/Boise Eliot Neighborhood. I walked from Overlook park down to Tillamook Street. The area around Interstate and Tillamook really reminded me of the Arts District in Los Angeles. Bike repair shops, taverns, art studios, rusty trucks, BMWs and barbed wire- a little bit of everything.
I’ll bring my sketchbook next time. This will be a great part of town to draw.
