For the many days of the year, these mountains are invisible. If you showed up in western Washington in November, you might not even know we had mountains here. Our rainy Northwest climate makes these peaks disappear into the clouds on most days—even, sometimes, when you’re right there, standing amongst them.

Not in the summertime, though. The best thing about the Northwest is that in the summer, the clouds disappear for months on end—and nearly every day we’re treated to crystal-clear views and flawless blue skies.

    Hey Chandler,
    I was at the Tacoma Art Museum today to hear a lecture about printmaking techniques and examples by the artists being featured in the upcoming show opening this Friday. I am a big fan of your work and was pleased to see that you will have a box piece with all sides showing the glory of Mt. Rainier changing daily. Like we view it’s ever changing beauty day after day. I can’t wait to see it. Congrats.
