"The San Patricio" Seattle city, oil painting by Robin Weiss

"The San Patricio"  18x24  oil on linen    Sold

Seattle is changing rapidly!!  They are in the process of tearing down the viaduct right now after years of tunneling under the city to replace outdated infrastructure. The waterfront will be transformed and Seattle as I have known it will be very different.
 There are still pockets of the city that remain as they have for decades. Post alley is one of those places. This scene of the San Patricio  restaurant in Post Alley near Pike Place Market has sold but is still on display in a featured artist exhibition at the Michael Birawer Gallery. Stop by and check out my recent Seattle city paintings if you get the chance. There will be a closing reception and "Happy Hour with Robin"  on March 23rd from 4-8pm. The Michael Birawer Gallery is located on First St. next to the Alexis Hotel and just a block down from the sky bridge to Coleman Dock.

Nil's Place 

As I said in my last post we have had a real winter in the Pacific Northwest this year with a couple good snow storms that blew through and stayed awhile.....Pretty unusual here these days
I was snow bound for about a week but because we had fair warning that snow was coming I brought my paints and gear home and was able to get a lot of work done in my home studio .

I was even able to get out and paint in the neighborhood a couple times.  This little plein air was done on Sawdust Hill Rd not far from our place during a lull in the storm.  My old friend Nils came out to see what I was doing at ended up buying the painting! 

Hope you get the chance to get out and paint too!

Here is a list of events I will be participating in this year along with as many PAWA paintouts that I can get to.  If you don't know what PAWA is, check out the website HERE. Hope to see you at one of events!!
