Not every day is rainy in Seattle. This sketch was done in the Seattle Japanese Gardens in the Washington Park Arboretum. I sat on a bench by the phenomenal wisteria trellis. The pungent smell of spent azaleas reminded me of cannabis recently available at retail stores in our state.
We enjoyed lunch on the deck at Ivar's on Lake Union. Lunch arrived faster than I had time to paint. I was struck by the brilliant orange of the umbrellas against the clear blue skies and finished the sketch after lunch.
