This is the southern end of a mural I noticed the other day from the Portland Streetcar. It's the white shapes on the black and brown background. It's located at 525 SE Pine Street, just east of SE Grand Avenue.
Here's that bit of the mural, its northern end--you get just a glimpse of it at the right edge of this photo. It's one of the Forest for the Trees, 2015, public art offerings.
One of these days, like I mentioned earlier, Leland and I will go on an outing to find and photograph murals around Portland. The ones easiest to find will be those for whom we will get locations from the lists on the Forest for the Trees Web site. We're both excited at the possibilities!
By the way, here's what we ate last night at 3 Doors Down Cafe. Leftmost, Lamont's special of the evening which was braised rabbit over papardelle with cacciatore sauce. In the middle, my mini meatballs with marinara and mozzerella plus baked macaroni and cheese. Rightmost you see Leland's roasted golden beets with pancetta and comte cheese risotto. Each one of us ended up supremely satisfied.
Before our dinner order arrived, we received a couple of grand appetizers from the Chef. I'm proud to say that both sons used to cook at 3 Doors Down Cafe, Lamont as sous chef, Leland as line and prep cook. so we have a great relationship with the restaurant.
On the left, housemade blood sausage with cipollini onions and fingerling potatoes. On the right, molasses cured salmon, buttered grilled rye bread, capers, onions. Needless to say, not a morsel of deliciousness remained once the three of us dove into them. Thanks, Chef!
