The Carleton Ave Grocery Store is one of the oldest in Seattle and one of only a few neighborhood corner stores left. Georgetown is the oldest neighborhood in Seattle. I’ve been by several times and it seems to be a neighborhood hub. People stop by for a chat and sit outside on the bench when the weather is nice. It is far more than a convenience store as it stocks nutritious food and fresh vegetables.
When the Urban Sketchers flickr group announced the weekly theme of “The most ___ house in your neighborhood” I thought I’d go over to sketch it as I’ve been meaning to for about a year. My neighborhood is boringly monoculture and bland, so I have to go somewhere else for interesting houses
Since there are several interesting buildings and structures in this part of Georgetown, I think we should have a sketch outing there!
Right next to it is an interesting traffic circle. I ran out of time to sketch this today.
Just up the next block from the grocery is the Hat and Boots
Right next to that is a P patch
Across the street is “the castle:
A couple blocks over is the Rock House
All in all, a target rich environment for sketching!
