Skyline Painter

I asked this artist if he would mind me taking a photo over his shoulder as he worked on a painting of the Seattle skyline across Lake Union. I thought his work was quite nice, and thought it ingenious how he used the back of a small tin as a pallet. We will have a few more days of barefoot weather this week. Wouldn't you know it would be that way just as college students begin their fall quarter at campuses around the Sound. Happy Monday everyone!

Nice shot. Something so tender about his position and those cast off flip flops.

I admire anybody able to set down flat on their butt with their legs outstretched in front of them and then being able to bend over and paint. I might be able to get that far but I would need a lot of help getting back up. Maybe I could roll down the hill and get somebody down there to help.

I invite you to stop and look at my Canon camera photographs. They are some of the best I can or have taken. My Canon Blog

Lovely capture Kim!!! The bare feet is a sweet touch as well. Does this man realize his possible future of a Blog model?

This is the perfect picture. If I was that guy I would have paid good money for a print of this. Your shots are so great!

Hey, that's me?!? What a great shot thanks for posting this and for all the nice comments! Please come browse my blog. I have an image of the finished painting. Can't believe that was three years ago
