I used to live just off Rainier St on South Garden and I would drive down Rainier Ave every day on the way home from work. Somehow I didn't notice the Columbia City Theatre back then. Columbia City has come a long way in the 15+ years since I lived near there. It is beautiful with lots of colors, activity, buildings, and shops, old and new. It was a somewhat chilly day in comparison with some of the almost summertime weather we've been having which made for some quick sketch and watercolor maneuvers on my part, including spills, splotches, huge droplets coming from the sky and landing on my page that I wasnt sure if came from the clouds or the birds. All in all, a nice day and I'm glad this crazy long summer weather is finally giving way to Fall. I am game for a few more outdoor sketchcrawls!
