By the Skagit River

What better thing to do than paint on sunny afternoon at a park in Mt. Vernon, by the Skagit river. Last time I was painting in this location, it was raining and I got what I think is a nice  moody painting out of it. This time the weather is completely different, and I hope I caught some of that summer weekend vibe.

The Old Chapel

This is a painting of the little chapel in Seattle's Discovery Park. The chapel was built in World War II. I've never seen it open, so I guess it doesn't really get used anymore. It still adds charm to the park though.

I went to discovery park that day with Emiliya Lane, who suggested it wen I was looking for a good painting spot in the Seattle area. I'm so glad to have met many artist friends who share these wonderful plein air locations with me.
