Parkade Alley                 14" x 11", oil

I painted this plein air work several years ago during one of the annual downtown Bellingham Plein Air Paint Outs (PAPO). It will be in the group exhibit, The PAPO City Hall Show, October - December 20012.  A portion of the sales will go to the Bellingham Arts Commission.  Stop by to see the show and take care of some holiday shopping.
