Not sure how I missed your reply, @REI-JohnJ 

I really am at a loss at this point what it will - or could - be. I moved from Vancouver, BC to Chicago about 23 years ago and not a day has gone by where I haven't thought about my beautiful city and the area. So I know the piece will pay some form of homage to the PNW. 

But, beyond that, still working it out. All of my pieces so far required a lot of time and thought before getting them so this is just the process. 🙂
