Pen & ink, 17 1/2” x 22”, 1980

Tacoma, Washington, where I’ve lived for 40 years, was settled even before Seattle in the 1850s. It was the terminus for the railroad, and lumber built this town. It also has a deeper natural harbor than Seattle, and it’s crammed with gorgeous late 19th and early 20th Century architecture. Mt. Rainier, in the title drawing, was originally called Tahoma – - the mountain that was God – - by the earliest Americans.

There is nothing I won’t try creatively. I love historic architecture and landscape. Although my work is mostly naturalistic, there’s always a strongly abstract quality to it. My radar is always tuned for interesting patterns and contrasts.

I also write a blog every week, http://www.wrylycoyote.com
