First in a new series of local scenes in Southeast Portland. Moreland Hardware is on Milwaukie Avenue in the Sellwood-Moreland area. I shop for my hardware needs at this locally owned and operated neighborhood establishment that is within easy walking distance of the house. In the 1970s when I got out of the Air Force I worked briefly for a True Value Hardware store in Turlock, California.

I haven't done any sketching in some time. I just haven't had the energy to do anything but I am wanting to change that. During a recent trip to the art store I noticed a tabletop rack of Strathmore's new cut to size ATC papers for sale. I picked up a package of Bristol and an assortment package to try my hand at doing some ATC's in the 2 1/2 x 3 1/2 inch size. Part of my kickstart to get back to drawing I chose a previous subject to draw my first ATC. The Painted Hills is the subject. In Prismacolor pencils.
