Description: We offer a charming, somewhat folky, watercolor on paper of a view of the street surrounding Skidmore Fountain at the junction of W. Burnside and Ankeny Streets in Portland, Oregon. It is signed and dated lower left: "René Rickabaugh 1986" and features several pedestrians and vehicles amidst a streetscape of dizzying, minutely drawn, colorful patterns.

It is painted to the edge of a 23 1/4" x 22" sheet of heavy drawing paper and matted in 8-ply to: 30 3/4" x 29 3/4". It is currently not framed. Item #FA00196.
