This place is a sketcher's dream with its old buildings (remnants of the Olympia Brewery), bridges, falls, fish ladders and trails. Worth the trip. I did the original sketch on a wet cloudy February day when there were no leaves on the trees. The color added on a second trip in April during unusually warm weather.
With the sale of the duplex I'm hoping to get sketching back into the routine.

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.
