Nature Lovers --- The Bear Creek Community in Woodinville, Washington is Great Real Estate, But You Have to Share the Fish ---

It is hard to say for sure, if our real estate is in Woodinville (sphere of influence), Cottage Lake (census district), Ring Hill (voting precinct), or the Bear Creek Community (just a stone's throw from that salmon spawning run). Whatever you want to call our home community, it is special to live within these wonderful designations.

Woodinville Bear Creek Eagle

If we are talking about Bear Creek, then we need to discuss the obvious derivation of the name. The nearby creek is home to a very occasionally seen shy brown bear. The two paintings in this post are part of a three painting set. They are done in acrylic and each is 24" square on canvas in their original size.

Along with the occasionally bear sighting, frequent flyovers by bald eagles are sure to amaze. Mary was caught in a trance earlier today watching an eagle soaring above, not moving its wings, and just gliding gracefully in spirals.

The third painting I did in this set, not included with these two, is of an Orca. I'm saving it for my post on the San Juan Islands. No Orcas have been sighted in Bear Creek, but the trio represents the dominant species (humans aside) of land, sea, and air. The other interesting commonality is their preferred diet of salmon. Which, we are a bit fond of ourselves as well.

One of the seasonal activities along Bear Creek is the annual salmon spawning run. Information booths are set up with directional signs on the roads leading folks to this amazing event along our creek.

Many styles of homes are available for purchase in a range from small bungalows to large acreage estates. There is a property type for everyone.

In addition, great schools in the Bear Creek Community are part of the highly respected Northshore School District. Employers within easy commutes include Microsoft and Boeing with many other employment opportunities within a short distance along tree-lined highways.

Excellent restaurants, wineries, shops and other necessities are within a short travel time from the natural environment of the Bear Creek Community. And be sure to check out the Bear Creek Country Club, and its 18-hole championship golf course. 

If you need a good doctor, or other medical attention, we've got you covered with a great selection.

Come and enjoy, but be sure to leave the salmon in the creek for the long-time inhabitants.

What great paintings. You could paint your Clients' houses and give them as closing gifts.

Thanks Debi, I get a great deal of enjoyment out of the painting process. If I wasn't so busy selling real estate, I'd do more.

Russel, On my last big closing, I actually did a painting of my client's favorite spot on his 18 acre sanctuary as a closing gift. He then commissioned a major work. They both now hang in his new home. What a great thrill that is, particularly since he is a very serious art collector.

Some of my favorite places to camp and hike are in Washington, haven't checked this area out yet, but it looks like I'm going to have to. (By the way beautiful paintings)

Your last two posts covered both of your audiences beautifully! I liked them both but this one will get a great google ranking for your prospective clients to come across.
