Dr. Seuss Paints the Back Alley in Port Townsend

A bit of a long winded title but I thought appropriate for the painting. This is a watercolor that I did when I was clearly tired of straight lines.

Into the Woods crochet sweater

Jack from the movie Into the Woods wears this sweater that looks almost like armor. I think it was made using a simple single crochet stitch.

Mui Mui Granny Granny Square Crochet Tops & pattern

Mui Mui has these 60's crochet granny square vests (cashmere) in their 2015 Spring Resort Collection. The top picture is from the latest W magazine. Whenever I see knitting or crochet on the runway I want to runway right out and make one for myself, or my teen daughter. The picture below has a link in text to an Etsy store that sells a pattern that to my eye is the same vest in different colors and likely different fibers.

Rickety Stairs at Fort Worden original watercolor

These rickety stairs at Fort Worden remind me of the stairs my dad and grandpa built that went down to the beach from our house when I was a kid. I still get thrilled when I go down to the beach and look for treasures.

Over the Rainbow watercolor

Over the Rainbow is an original watercolor of a street in Port Townsend. I love how when you get up on a hill looking down the streets, it affords you a view of the water, the mountains beyond and sometimes the water beyond that!
