What's a Halloween without a Jack O Lantern! This one was sculpted from soldered tin sheets. I discovered it at the Puyallup Fair back in September of 2010. Later, I couldn't resist and had to play with it and turn the photo into a digital painting. Yesterday and today were such typical Pacific N...

I was at the Seattle Center the other day with my good friend Dave. We enjoyed a beautiful afternoon conversing about life, the universe, and pretty much everything under the sky. My mind's been all over the map lately and I choose to blame it on the unseasonably good weather and not anything or ...

I’m getting hit with all this 50 year anniversary stuff lately. I think I need to buy lotto tickets and use some of these dates as numbers to play. Today is the day after that famous Columbus Day Storm of 1962, so sorry, I know, old news. I was 12 years old then and I still remember quite a lot a...

Do you remember finger painting as a child? I used to love the promise of a blank piece of paper and the challenge of creating something pretty....well, pretty as defined by a 5 year old! Fast forward 40+ years and it seems I can still be moved by fingerpainting. About 18 months ago, with Reside...

I woke up early this morning. No idea why. It’s Saturday and that’s a couple 2 or 3 extra taps on the snooze button. Yet I’m up, coffee’s on and I’m looking through pictures on my PC. “Man... did I take a lot of photos or what this summer!” And I hardly used any of them. In fact, I’m just discove...

I was late getting home last Friday night so I did the quick and scramble to tidy up, run the dishwasher, get dinner started, and take out the garbage. A busy week, across the finish line, and “Yay” I’m home. I’m working on a couple of music pieces, so while my little chuck roast and veggies need...

Yesterday I stopped by the Renton Farmers Market to stock up on fresh produce and to say goodbye to many vendors and acquaintances for the season. This was the last market of the year and you couldn’t have picked a more beautiful evening for the occasion. I was running late with traffic and tryin...

A point we shouldn't overlook online as marketers who blog as our primary strategy is understanding we live in a culture of searchers. As in the most ancient of times, or like the most modern of times, regardless of what we’re looking for, it's very likely these days we'll start with Google (or ...

One of my favorite buildings in Renton is the Historical Museum on the east end of old downtown. This beautiful Art Deco building, built in 1942 under Roosevelt’s WPA program, was originally Fire Station #1. As synchronicity would have it I was just thinking about fashion as uniforms. I was drivi...
