In our search for a new place to live we stayed at a little place in Friday Harbor Washington called Orcas Inn. After a long day of driving and looking at the beautiful area I just did a quick Orcas Inn Drawing.

It’s nice to get lost in a drawing, even after a long day. It’s very easy to forget about my commitment to daily art when we are traveling but when I start drawing I get lost into it really easy.

I tend to focus on the different lamps or lighting in these hotels that we stay at. Over the years I have traveled and still done drawings or paintings but I’m always drawn to how the light from lamps and wall sconces cascade the interior.

I am an Artist and a programmer currently living in the amazing state of Washington. I have a passion for art, but I'm stubborn as hell with it. My day is complete only when I do some piece of art each day, no matter how small. "There was a dream that was Rome. You could only whisper it. Anything more than a whisper and it would vanish, it was so fragile."
