Waiting for the #157

After dropping Kiersten off at school I stopped at a local coffee house and sketched the bus stop outside. This guy really didn't look that sad or pathetic, sometimes the pen has a mind of it's own....

Mexico Lindo Restaurant

This place in downtown Kent is celebrating it's 35th anniversary, I've eaten there a few times. Drew this from a newly discovered coffee shop near the Justice Center called Kona Kai Coffee. There's lot of room to spread out and sketch, Espn is always on the big screen and the back room has comfortable couches. Cool.

Library Dragon

This colorful guy supervises the children section of the library. I think the computers at our library get more use than the books......

Merchant Cafe

Seattle's oldest restaurant established in 1890 sits just south of the pergola and Pioneer Square. This was an Urban Sketchers get together. Great turnout and weather.

I've been a long time fan of adventurously seasoned foods.......This chef is a kitschy wine bottle holder that has always held the favorite hot sauce of the month in the Ryan household.

Shopping Carts

I think it tells you a lot about a person's character by what they do with their shopping cart when they are done with it. I've seen people put a huge effort into getting their empty cart into the nearest flower bed as opposed to walking it over the the cart park.

Band Competition

I am so very proud of my daughter and her skills playing music (trumpet, flute and piano). recently her high school band participated in a competition in nearby Enumclaw.

Sleepwalking for coffee

I'm guessing she's just dropped the kids off at school......but was it the right school?

Hoop Series #3

Basketball hoops and courts come in all shapes and sizes, I've decided to combine my love of basketball and art by doing a series of interesting (to me) hoops that might have a story to go with them. This hoop is located in downtown Kent, WA and for years the ivy has grown over the backboard, the owners have always done a good job of trimming the growth so you can see the goal.

Dad's Herb Garden

We've been spending more time at the homestead while Dad is recuperating from a short illness. In recent years he turned a dairy trough into a raised herb garden off the kitchen door.
