1119 SW Park Avenue - Mark Building - sold

This is a door to part of the Portland Art Museum. I was painting outside in the park across from the PAM today. The PAM is hosting the first invitational plein air event to celebrate their California Impressionism Exhibit from the Irvine Museum in California. The dates for this event are; August 4 & 5. I am very excited to be one of 50 artists invited to participate in this first ever event!
I have always liked painting architecture, this building has some history! It was originally built in 1925, as a Masonic Temple. It was a rock concert venue in the 60's and is now part of the Portland Art Museum. (I read that THE DOORS played there!) The building is now known as the Mark Building.
