Frame Your Journey: Washington

And the journey continues! This week our friend Carla has moved on from the plains of Wyoming and the mountains of Montana to the rainy state of Washington. And she have some seriously frameworthy items: stunning sunset Instagrams from Montana (see last week's update), a cool poster from Yellowstone, and an amazing collection of vintage postcards.

As Carla moves along her route, she's greeted by packaging at her destinations (we just sent a few Framebridge boxes to Oregon!) so she can send her treasures to our studio to be framed. Stay tuned for sneak peaks over on her Instagram. (We may or may not be planning a trio of float mounted post cards.) In the meantime, see what Carla ate, who she met, and what art she made during her time in Washington. Oh, and don't forget to read the captions!

How would you describe this week in a word? Northwestern! We headed straight for Washington this week. It was like driving into a big misty cloud, and a nice change from the dusty plains encountered in the first two weeks of the trip.

Most noteworthy thing that happened: A sunset trip to 'Deception Pass', a pebbled beach on the Washington coast. Stunning views, piles of silver driftwood, and a few locals fishing for wild silver salmon.

Most delicious thing you ate: Bright pink pacific smoked salmon.

Most interesting person you met: Bob of Bow, Washington. Bob makes his own wine from north Washington grapes in the basement of his farmhouse. He walked us through the entire process and even gave us a taste!

Most beautiful thing you saw: The snowy peak of Mt. Rainier rise into view as we drove from Seattle to South Washington.

Make any art this week? I painted a watercolor of the Seattle skyline, and also of the Wyoming plains we crossed last week.

Beautiful, moody Washington coast- exactly how I imagined you. Bring on the rain.

Painted alleys in Bend. It felt good to stay in one place for a week before heading to Portland!

Last but not least... what item do you want to frame from this week? Some beautiful vintage illustrated postcards I picked up in Yellowstone National Park last week, and a large print of the Old Faithful geyser. 


You guys. How cool are those postcards!? And how pretty is that watercolor? And thanks again to Carla for her updates! We're so happy to #frameyourjourney.
