Drove down some of the backroads between Kent and Auburn and ended up at this grain hopper (?). I find the mish mash of buildings appealing to draw. This was a two page sketch that didn't scan well, loses something in the translation......
Went to Georgetown (Seattle) and stumbled across the landmark Hat and Boots. Once a gas station and part of a western themed shopping complex called Frontier Village in the 1950's, the hat (not shown) was the cashier stand and the boots were the men and ladies restrooms. They were rescued from a dilapidated state by volunteers and relocated to Oxbow Park.
When I first arrived a family of four were having a picnic on the toe of the first boot. The hat is place quite a ways from the boots and will have to be a separate sketch another day.
6400 block between Carleton Ave. S. and Corson Ave. S.
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.
