Weekend in Leavenworth, WA

We spent President's Weekend at a time share in Leavenworth, WA. It's a touristy place that has decked itself out as a Bavarian transplant since the 60's. Beautiful weather and scenery were dampened only by my coming down with the flu bug.

Am closing in on the end of the Marty Sketchbook - This was straight watercolor a rarity for me, looking out our back deck at the Leavenworth Golf Course and Cascade Mountains.

Museum of Flight

My digital photography class got together at the Museum of Flight this afternoon for a photo shoot. I got there a couple of hours early to get some sketching in. Pen and ink with water wash and gray marker, in the Marty sketchbook.

Arcturus Rough Draft

Arcturus is a annual literary publication that is put out by the Writing Dept. at the college, each year the Graphic Design Dept. gets to compete for the cover design.

This years theme is 'water' so I went with a surreal take on the subject. The concept is by no means new, a local artist from the '80s created paintings with color on the outside and a b/w interior. I definitely like the contrast, though I'm sure they are looking for something with more sophistication.

I've promised my wife that I would come up with something new for the back cover - the dog floating in deep water gave her anxiety...........

Bellevue College Jazz Competition

Am so very proud of my daughter (Kiersten) who plays trumpet for the Kentridge High School Jazz Band. They played in a competition at Bellevue College against nationally ranked schools like Seattle's Garfield and Roosevelt. This page was a collection of quick sketches done throughout the day. Pen and ink in the Marty sketchbook.
