West Side story

'On the West Side'  34x28"; oil and soft pastel,
charcoal;  Kathleen Faulkner

The weather is different over on the west side.  
The fog stays longer, the wind blows harder and the temperature coming off the water is usually a couple degrees cooler.  The west side looks out to the San Juan Islands,  an area protected by the rain shadow.  Less rain, more sun.  I've seen cactus on some of the islands further west.

Today is all about the same.  Grey day, not too cold.  
A good day to walk on the west side
no wind.

I never walk in those woods when it's windy.
