9. Public Market, Seattle
In the summer of 2006, I spent a week in Seattle and found the city to be extraordinary. I really enjoyed exploring the various corners of the city and staying at a bed and breakfast in Capital Hill. The city's proximity to the water is certainly an asset. It is no wonder tourists flock to the public market, near to the water's edge. In undertaking a series of "sign paintings" I've been primarily drawn to images with which I have a familiarity and nostalgia. With this image, I've indulged in the nostalgia of a relaxing vacation and imagination of the pleasure of living in a place like Seattle.
