"The Reflecting Wall" Seattle city scenes, oil cityscape

Still working on my images of the city in Seattle WA. I found this one from earlier in the fall and was re-inspired by my original interest in the reflections off the polished granite wall of this building.

"First and Pike" Seattle city scenes, oil cityscape

There is something about this corner in Seattle that keeps inspiring me to create more cityscape paintings. In the distance you can see the sky bridge to the convention center. In the foreground, The Green Tortoise Hostel, a subject I have painted many times.

"The Picasso Exhibit" Seattle city scenes, oil cityscape painting

Recently there has been a Picasso exhibit at the Seattle Art Museum. On the first day you were allowed free entry if you dressed in red!....What a hoot to see the long line of folks dressed in every shade of red. We saw quite a few Picasso's at the Cleveland Art Museum this summer so we skipped this one. From what I heard there were over 300 pieces of art!
This is a view of the front of the Seattle Art Museum. (SAM)
