Sketched Scenes from Sailing the Islands in the Pacific Northwest

I have attached two sketched scenes I created from a trip we took a few years ago to Henry Island in the Pacific Northwest. We were staying with our daughter and her husband in Seattle and were headed to Henry Island where our son-in-law’s family had a couple of homes. To get to Henry Island, we took a ferry from Anacortes, Washington to Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. We then drove across the island to Roche Harbor where their was a family boat docked for the final leg of the journey over to Henry Island.

The first art print represents the scene I saw as we came into Friday Harbor, which is on San Juan Island. The second art print was a sailboat I saw as we headed back going by Lopez island. It was a beautiful day for sailing.

    These are beautiful reminders of that area of the country, Kirt. Thanks for sharing these. I remember traveling by ferry and the driving where you wonder if people should be.

    Both fabulous art prints. I’ve been to Friday Harbour and Roche Harbour a number of times by boat and love that area. Now I feel a bit homesick but you have evoked great memories. The west coast is an artist’s paradise!

      It truly is stunning country….I love Henry Island and going through Friday Harbor and Roche Harbor makes it even more magical!! We also went to an oyster farm just outside of Roche Harbor owned by my son-in-laws uncle….fascinating!
