Port of Tacoma

Kiersten had back to back orchestra days in Tacoma which gave me the opportunity to sketch this one day and color it the next. Mother Nature also was kind and though she spared the rain, she did provide some finger numbing temperatures - well, it is still January.

I don't know what building this is, it's old, boarded up and is in need of someone's big wallet to get her back into shape. Let's hope that happens, it's still a grand building even in it's current condition. 

There are a number of mills in the Port of Tacoma and most all have their steam/smoke stacks going. They provide their own cloud system even on the nicest of days.

Don't know if I would do this tall format again, doesn't bode well for computer viewing.

Tully's - Tacoma

This Tully's resides in a triangle shaped vintage building in the theater district of Tacoma. Hope they can keep this location despite the companies money problems. This isn't the first time I've drawn this point of view but the end of the coffee shop seems to showcase a new eccentrically (or is that fashionably) dressed patron.

South Park New Year's Day Tradition

This is the second sketch I've done on New Year's Day from the industrial area just south of downtown Seattle known as South Park.

The Canyon - Ryan Ranch

This sketch was done shortly after my cousin's wedding which took place in this beautiful canyon that sits just north of the Ryan Ranch in Chelan, Washington. This was an October wedding and Mother Nature cooperated providing a crisp sunny day for the event.
