Such an exhausting week this week with work and Christmas parties. TGIF! My weekend plans consist of sleep 😴 and super smash bros 🤓 and I couldn’t be happier about it

Heading back east for the holidays. Will be missing my Seattle fam while I'm away 😭 #portra400 #yashicamat124g

The weekend cannot come soon enough!⠀
.⠀
My husband and I love this spot in the middle of the Columbia River Gorge⠀
.⠀
It’s a place we can hike in with our dogs and camping chairs, set up shop to watch the sun light up the sky with the most epic backdrop and just sit and reconnect⠀
.⠀
I hope you use your time of rest to do what matters to you⠀
.⠀
Happy Friyay!⠀

Sometimes the view from the gondola is one of the best 🚠

If you're reading this, then maybe you know you ought to read everything. And maybe you know you ought to read deeply. Because there's witchery in these words and spellwork in the spine.

Basic.
Ok - doing Mailbox while sick sucks, like no I mean it really sucks. However I wanted to push through & make it to the top... Yup, it was fate - Mailbox was dressed up as Mickey Mouse for the day!!! 😍
Up & down the old trail.

Hanging out with Reindeer in holiday light mazes at @enchantsea. The festive event runs through Dec 30th and is worth checking out!

I’m not really into astrophotography, but I was up Badger Mountain Road early this morning to try and find enough clearing in the sky to catch the Geminid Meteor Shower, so I took the camera along. From 3-4am, there wasn’t much of a show to be seen. I did see a couple of streaks, but didn’t capture anything on camera. However, I figured that I might as well use the outing as a chance to practice using the new camera at night. Here is a shot from the viewing area on the side of Badger Mountain Rd just before you get to the top of the valley.

The Sleeping Giant.

I had such a hard time capturing this picture because it was so foggy! I would have a clear view of the mountain, and then when I started to bring out the drone, the fog would come in so heavy 😂

I haven’t hugged a #tree in a couple months and I’m pretty sad about it. Stoked for some mountain time this weekend 😍 #throwback

Hello! I’m the Katharina that creates these things. I have always enjoyed seeing other makers’ #fridayintroductions and figured I might as well say hi too! I’m an architect living in Seattle, WA. I love hiking and camping and mountains, which is how I ended up here after growing up in Austin, Texas. I started watercolor painting in high school, but really fell in love with painting while traveling when I studied abroad in Italy my fourth year of architecture school. .
.
This year I’ve focused on dedicating more time to my art, trying to paint something every day. It hasn’t always gone as planned, but it has helped me grow as an artist. I haven’t loved everything I’ve created, but I have accepted that not everything will be perfect, and that is fine. Creating anything is better than sitting back and doing nothing. .
.
The last two photos are of me from this past weekend camping trip-turned artist retreat. I didn’t even notice Caleb taking them because I was so happily caught up in my work, letting go of all my other worries and needs. That’s my favorite part of painting. Getting lost in a perfect moment with my palette, paper, and brush.

With just a few weeks left in 2018, I'm staring to look back through the year. There is something really valuable in remembering the joys and pains of a year. Not letting those moments just fly away, but making sure that the most poignant are forever etched into your being. Stay tuned.⠀

Taking a couple of days off to rest and recover from work madness, but weather throws a spanner in my plans

But nevertheless hanging out with my favourite people, despite the shitty weather outside

Throwback to the trip from last weekend
