KAPOW = Kevin’s Art Project of the Week

On a recent hike in the Olympics, I came across this tree (below).

Tree with a face.

Naturally, I saw the face…..who doesn’t see the face? I thought a digital painting would bring this Ent to its full glory.

Use the image comparison below to see the transformation of the painting.

The hike started out in the clouds. When I reached tree line, I broke above the clouds and could see for miles in every direction. As I watched the lower valley clouds rumble, a series of higher clouds rolled through. I had the camera set up at a five second increment. I ate a snack, checked the phone, then just watched. Truly a magical experience.

There is a giant dust spot on the lens…..everything I did to correct it made it worse. I was able to mitigate it on the ‘cloudy’ frames, but for the clear ones you will see the spot. Character? I say yes.

A woodworking project–a basketweave-like pattern in an end-grain cutting board. Every woodworker makes a cutting board at some point……integrating a fun pattern to it makes it intriguing. The light grained wood is maple and the darker (with blonde highlights) is walnut. In the future I will be sure to capture more of the as-building steps (I did a poor job of that here).

Enjoy a few more photos of the completed board.

In homage to the twelve year history of the KPOW (minus the A)—in which I took and posted a photo each week from 2007 through 2018—I thought it fitting to start this new, expanded, more liberal KAPOW project with a couple of photos of the week. Enjoy!

The bustling field of Avalanche Lilies up on Tyler Ridge had not yet fully inverted, but made for a spectacular site—all askew in various directions. That should be Mount Townsend and Buckhorn Mountain blurred out in the background. Taken roughly from: 47°54’08.5″N 123°09’21.2″W.

The late afternoon light and the lovely bokeh…..this is why I like photography.
