Art in the Garden

On July 29th I’ll be participating in a local event called Art in the Garden in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle.

This is the 16th annual Art in the Garden (AITG) event, and is the sole fundraiser for the Ballard P-Patch.
The event includes live music, food trucks, beer/wine garden, silent auction, kids activities, and most importantly artists displaying and selling their art. It is a very fun, family friendly, community event in the Ballard P-Patch. It typically attracts between 700-900 people.

I look forward to seeing you there!

Art in the Garden – Saturday, July 29 11 – 5

There are P-Patches throughout Seattle. If you are interested in learning more here is the Seattle Community Gardens official website:

Godzilla Considers His Options

When I was a kid I watched the “ABC 4:30 Movie” every week. Sometimes the theme was Alfred Hitchcock or Edgar Allen Poe. I was riveted by all of them but, my favorite was Godzilla Week! Godzilla was mysterious, fearless and intimidating – all while still having a sense of humor. The best scenes for me were when Godzilla mockingly laughed at his opponent. Other favorites were Mothra and Gamera. They were my heroes.

This watercolor and pen drawing is my little homage to the great Godzilla or ゴジラ, Gojira.


Seattle Pottery

Had a great day visiting Seattle Pottery Supply. I feel fortunate that this place is only about 20 minutes away from my home. It’s located in SoDo one of my favorite places in Seattle – gritty, raw and real. Sometimes Seattle can be so full of itself so this place is (not literally) a breath of fresh air. I’m sure it will change as Seattle expands outward, but for now I can enjoy it.
