Strut, 7511 Greenwood Ave. N., features paintings by Richard Goettling.

I draw and paint whatever comes to my mind in the moment. Lately the Sasquatch has captured my imagination as an archetype related to the Pacific Northwest, and as some kind of mysterious bridge between humans and the rest of creation. The question for me is not whether or not they exist, but rather, why do I want them too.
