The Flats, Cleveland

Michelle and I painted in the Cleveland Flats on the Center Street bridge Friday and Saturday afternoon. It was a fascinating place to paint. A painting at every turn. However we chose this area at the end of the red bridge. The gatekeeper tried to talk us into taking a photo to paint from, rather than standing so near the mechanical gates. I told him we were "Plein Air" painters. He responded that he felt like he was keeping a Frenchmen from painting the Eiffel Tower! So he said we could stay, but when the bells and whistles went off we were to leave our easels and run beyond the gates. Sweet guy.
