2013, Oil on Hardboard, 5"x 5"
On the right is Pier 57 (Pier 56 is on the left) home to many restaurants, souvenir shops, an arcade, and of course The Seattle Great Wheel. The Wheel stands 175 feet high and is the largest observation wheel on the west coast. It has 42 fully-enclosed gondolas so it can remain open all year. Seattle is not a particularly tall city so the wheel is visible from all over, especially around the waterfront.
