Park Painter

When I was at Commodore Park in June several men were scattered around with their easels painting. I asked if they were taking a class and was told no, they are friends who get together every month or two at different locations around Seattle to enjoy their painting hobby. I thought that was pretty cool. (I’ve seen painters all around Volunteer Park on one of my visits there also.)

I don’t often photograph people (aside from family snapshots), but as I was leaving for the day this gentleman was starting to pack up and I asked if I could take his photo with his paintings. He happily agreed. Posted for Cee’s Oddball Photo Challenge (but not implying this nice man is an oddball!).
