with  acrylics,  though  watercolor
remains  my  primary  love.

originally  used  this  building  as  Rainier Cold Storage,  and it retains
impressive 18 " thick wooden beams
and supports. In the past, horses
pulled beer wagons up ramps right into the building, through the large
loading dock doors that now enter my studio. The building
is now an art
complex with other artists, which lends itself to very stimulating
