Blue Heron at Willamette Falls

This week the Daily Paintworks challenge is to "find the art in an industrial scene" and paint it. Well, I just happened to walk along the path this morning that overlooks the Blue Heron paper mill on the Willamette River. The sun was coming up behind me and glowed golden on the river, while the factory was still in cool shadows. That is Willamette Falls behind the mill, which is misting up into the hills that are being touched with morning color. For once I looked at the industrial scene as a potential art project instead of a blight on the river. Nice challenge!
