Thank you Tom Hoffmann! I have officially done more plein aire this year than I have the last 5. This morning, I seized the morning light and painted a Lake Washington view from Seward Park. I rushed down the hill before 8:00 AM only to discover I had forgotten my paints. Determined to make use of the trip, I sat down with my pencil and started to sketch the scene. In less than 5 minutes I knew I had to go back home to get my paint, this beautiful scene needed to be painted. This is Mount Rainier in all its splendor.
