Public Market and Those Seattle Clouds!

#24/365 Paintings 2013

There’s something about Seattle. The chill in the watery air, abundance of coffee house choices, the smell of the sea — all those productive worker bees running around looking for new gluten free bakeries and reuse ideas for their homes, offices, gardens and wardrobes.

The public market stands by it’s consumer “meet the producer” goals. It opened in 1907 and is as continuous and robust as the clouds in Seattle.

I just had to paint this at a steep glance UP given how the market is architected on a steep hill. Plus, if we are going to gaggle at clouds, let’s really get the full effect of sky!
