If you should find yourself near the bustling intersection of Westlake and Denny in downtown Seattle some time between now and the end of November, you could pop over to Wheelhouse Coffee (the sharp corner building at Westlake and 8th Avenue, specifically: map) and—along with their fancy coffee blends—take in a whole bunch of framed A* art prints (and even take some home if you want to spend the dough). There are a couple right inside the door

a couple more between their huge, eastward-facing windows

(which render the place brilliant of a morning, I'm told, but the dazzled eyes of their brave bartenders will soon be shielded by yet more of the mostly Amazon-fueled new construction going up everywhere in that area—Amazon's Seattle-area 1-hour Amazon Prime shipping center is on the *other* side of the Wheelhouse, for instance (it had been the dealership where I bought my Toyota, but they gladly sold the property for what was probably buckets of money and moved very inconveniently to south Seattle = PP ... but now I feel liberated from going in to let them tell me all the expensive things they want to do to my car, so that's nice), so you'll also get to watch a lot of their bike messengers blazing in and out on local deliveries), and then the rest high up on their wall behind the counter

extremely helpfully hung there by an expert employee wielding a very tall ladder. The vertical nature of the joint contrasts decidedly with my cinematic-format prints, but the staff seemed pleased with the result, and as long as the baristas are happy, my mission is done.

In the growing twilight as I left after concluding my exhausting "supervision" of the art hanging, the setting sun created a striking impression on yet *more* of the shiny new buildings all around the place:

Image

That's the view south along Westlake, and the Wheelhouse is the building corner on the right. 2113 Westlake Ave. Seattle, WA 98121, open weekdays 6 am to 7 pm and weekends 8 am to 2 pm, my stuff there for two months (through November), stop by and say hi, they seem like nice folks. (And thanks to my dad for scouting the place out, and the expert framing!)

(Today was the day where I tried something different with the watercolor paint mixing in the daily A* page; it's probably hard to tell the difference, but I'll likely jabber about it tomorrow anyway.)
