Recent Seattle Art





One of the best parts of visiting my nearly 7-year-old twin grandsons is doing art with them.
Top to Bottom:
1.  Wilson's picture, done while I was drawing the bird, flower and flying bug below it.  I think his flying bugs were influenced by my drawing, but he is a very independent artist and tends to go his own way.
2.  My pencil drawing of a bird, flower and bug.
3.  Cole's tree painting, done while I was painting a watercolor memory of the view of Puget Sound, and the Olympic Mountains from Discovery Park.
4.  My watercolor painting, using the twins' somewhat inferior paint.
5.  A photo of the view of Puget Sound, the Olympic Mountains and the light house in Discovery Park.

Mount Zion Lonestar Quarry As Seen From Mt. Diablo

The sky was dull and hazy when Elsa and I hiked to the top of Mt. Diablo, but with the Alien Skin Exposure X plugin to Lightroom that was easily fixed.  By adding an old color movie filter, labelled "Technicolor Process 4, Vibrant," on my photo, you might think I had swallowed some artificial chemical on the hike.  But you would be wrong.  All I had to eat was a fakin bacon sandwich from Good Earth.

February Berkeley Beauty

There are fabulous photographers, like David Maisel and Mishka Henner, who show in their incredible aerial photos how man is destroying our world.  I choose to focus on the beauty that remains, so we are reminded of what we need to protect.  The UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley is one such place with its incredible variety of plants.

Sherman in the Garden on a Gray Winter Day

It was cold outside, behind the thorny rose bush, but that didn't stop Sherman, a recycled metal and bicycle parts bunny, from peering happily out at the new growth.
