Artist's comment: While I was on a lunch break from court duty I walked to a spot near the Seattle City Hall and found a bench under a beautiful Japanese Maple tree. I made drawings of this tree, planted in honor of a former Seattle Mayor. Later copied the drawing to a copper plate. It is an Artist Trading Card format, with the legend on the back.
