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....
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.
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.
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.
Beyond family, I'd say that art, sports and the quest to cook a great meal are the big priorities in my life.
I am 56 years old, and live in the Seattle area with my wife of 29 years. I have a beautiful daughter who shines as an EMT in Pierce County and I live in the suburbs, but truth be told, would rather be a city or country boy.
I love a good game of hoops and nothing makes me happier than the opportunity to draw and paint.....Time stops.
I like my brew dark, that goes for coffee and beer.
