This is a painting of the view from I-5 as we leaving Seattle for the airport. The thing that struck me was how the sun broke through a crevice in the clouds and shone on the Imperial Walkers. These are the heavy lifters along the Duwamish Waterway. I've always been impressed by these behemoths which seem to dominate the landscapes of just about every major seaport.
The third installment in our series, this is the scene as we are about to take off. It is absolutely my favorite point in any flight, the moment of anticipation of that incredible acceleration that always brings me back to neighborhood drag racing. Not that any of my clunkers were anywhere near this fast.
This is a painting of City Park in Hagerstown, Maryland. It was painted, or at least started on-site during the summer and am just getting around to finishing it. When I start a landscape outdoors I prefer to finish it in the studio. Outdoors I'm in record mode, later, without the distraction of reality, I can concentrate on just making it a good painting.
Sitting under one of the many bridges in Seattle. It looks like the Aurora Bridge but I can't be sure because I lost track of where we were. This was the case for most of the day until we would come to a landmark.
