Civil Architectures - The End Of The Viaduct

65 words

An Alaska Way Viaduct painting, a view from Ako Lindley's studio in the old 619 Western Building. This was purchased by the then CEO of Daniel Smith, Inc., and featured on the cover of their annual catalogue. The painting exceeded their budget, so I took half of it in trade for art supplies. I still have some of those.

Linin' Track

77 words

This is a painting from my second show at Davidson Galleries. It depicts the lining of track for a new extension of the trolly that carried tourists from the edge of the International District to points along the Alaska Way Viaduct, all the way to Myrtle Edwards Park. The trolly was short lived. A sculpture park required real estate that provided the only maintenance shed for the trolly, at the start of Myrtle Edwards.
