Lake Quinault

This trip to Washington state is making me discover and attempt to differentiate many different shades of green. Pines had a much darker green as opposed to the yellow ocher green of conifers. This lodge was the end of a hectic days drive as I rushed to find a place that had internet access. This sort of Swiss looking lounge was a place where I was able to set up and check e-mails. Besides getting apiece sent off to Orlando Home and Leisure I also had to work up an assignment for an auto company that wants to run a blog sketch on 25,000 bags for an auto conference. They picked an image that has alot of Photoshop painting involved and since that image is at the home studio, I had to rework the whole painting. So rather than relaxing at the lake, we decided to drive through to Seattle the next day, where I finished work on the painting.
When we got to Seattle we visited Gabi and his family. Gabi founded "Urban Sketchers" and it was fantastic to get a chance to flip through some of his sketchbooks. Gabi also had that days newspaper out which featured one of his sketches in the local section. I asked for the page since which would be helpful as a way for me to pitch the idea of an Orlando Sentinel sketch blog.
From Gabi's house we drove down to Queen Ann Hill again to visit Terry's sister.

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
