A small group of sketchers met at the Nordic Museum today. I’d never been there before and I found it quite interesting. What was the first thing we saw? Just some architectural sketches by one of Urban Sketchers Seattle’s own Stephanie Bower!
I did two sketches. After a quick run around the 3 floors, I choose to stay in the room with the costumes.
Woman’s Danish National Folk Costume, ca. 1920.
Sami Hats: “Man’s Four Winds hat” with a four cornered star shape. “Hat with Pom-pom”. “Man’s hat with visor”.
Here’s the little sketching group:
And I took a lot of photos, too.
I stayed in the area as I had some friends’ art reception to attend in the late afternoon. I planned to have lunch at Dick’s Drive In. Dick’s is a Seattle icon and often voted “best burger”. This location dates from 1960 but the earliest one opened in 1954. Despite living here for 13 years next month, this is the first time I’ve been near one! It was quite good…. just about as good as In N’ Out! Of course, I also did a sketch.
I still had some time so I drove around looking for something to sketch before going to the art reception. I found the Chimes Tower in the Veterans Memorial in the Evergreen & Washell Cemetery.
