We got together at the Amgen Footbridge at the north end of Elliott Bay. It was a great turnout and we were rewarded with a rare stretch of time with no rain (though I inhaled a colony of pesky gnats).
This sketch is of a fishing boat docked at the Smith Cove Waterway. I will add some color and finish under the dock when time permits. Great to have fellow Highline students Val Thompson, Alex Poorman, and Brian Mason join us. Hope they get the bug and want to become regulars.
I got in some urban hiking for this event, got off the bus at Benaroya Hall in downtown and walked the 2.5 miles through Olympic Sculpture and Myrtle Edwards Parks to get to our rendezvous. It is a beautiful region we live in (when it's not raining.....).
Pen and ink with grey marker in the Eileen VB sketchbook.
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.
