Valentine’s Day Sunrise

Valentine’s Day Sunrise • 5×5 • oil on canvas • SOLD

I walked down to the Eastern Prom to check out the sunrise from beyond the 6 foot high snow banks & it was so pretty.  I actually only witnessed the pre-sunrise which is usually the most magnificent part.  I love the silhouettes of the trees, fort & islands & the lamp post lights that were still lit.  Because of my timing, I completely missed the Valentine Bandit’s mark that was left upon the Fort.  See image below.  I adore the Valentine Bandit who has been littering local businesses & landmarks with simple red hearts for over 40 years each Valentine’s Day.  Just one of the many things that make Portland so special.
