Auburn Farm

Drove down some of the backroads between Kent and Auburn and ended up at this grain hopper (?). I find the mish mash of buildings appealing to draw. This was a two page sketch that didn't scan well, loses something in the translation......

Georgetown Boots - Oxbow Park

Went to Georgetown (Seattle) and stumbled across the landmark Hat and Boots. Once a gas station and part of a western themed shopping complex called Frontier Village in the 1950's, the hat (not shown) was the cashier stand and the boots were the men and ladies restrooms. They were rescued from a dilapidated state by volunteers and relocated to Oxbow Park.

When I first arrived a family of four were having a picnic on the toe of the first boot. The hat is place quite a ways from the boots and will have to be a separate sketch another day.

Construction site

Stopped by the Fairwood Shopping Center for a coffee and a sketch. They tore down the vacant QFC building and are putting in a L.A. Fitness. There goes my excuse that the gym is too far away......
