Since the prediction was for good weather all day, I waited until it warmed up a bit after lunch to go out to sketch. Silly me. Never trust the weather forecasters here! I did get my two planned sketches done, though, before it started to sprinkle. Good thing I didn’t decide to do a walking and sketching tour of all the weirdness in Fremont. I’m saving that for either an ad-hoc sketch outing with others and/or warmer weather.
First is a local oddity for the Urban Sketchers weekly theme. Tina found a website with all the odd things to see in WA. This U-Haul Space Needle was one of them and it’s only a couple miles from me. It is a replica of the real one at Seattle Center. This one stands perhaps 40 feet tall in the parking lot of a U-Haul rental business.
Next I’ve resumed my sketching of the Renton public art. This is a statue of Clayton Scott at the entry of the Municipal Airport. Here’s a PI article about him when he died at 101 y/o. He was one of the Puget Sound region’s best-known pilots and the former personal pilot for Bill Boeing.
