Fort Wonder's Magic Mountain
In May of 2015 my parents moved to Port Townsend and asked me to paint a picture of our area in my colorful, fun style to hang in their new home Uptown. More than a decade of living in beautiful Port Townsend had filled my mind with images which flowed easily and quickly onto my watercolor paper... A tall ship and sailor at port, Victorian houses and downtown buildings, the paper mill, a freighter, Mt. Rainier, a flock of airplanes and birds, tall trees, an orca and salmon, etc, etc... On the left is Fort Worden, or Fort Wonder - as I like to call it. A hill covered in colorful buildings, flags flying, cannons and bunkers, sand castles and kids.
I imagine this mountain to be a wellspring of artistic energy exploding upward and outward, raining down perpetually on the people of Port Townsend, The Olympic Peninsula and beyond... Could this magical hill be the source of our local artist’s creative fervor?

An extra bit of story...
Artillery Hill is becoming a Hill of Art. Fort Worden is becoming Fort Wonder. This ancestral, Native land, turned military fort, turned state park is continually evolving into a place where humans from all walks of life can come together harmoniously and express themselves.
