After today’s sketch outing I continued on to Georgetown, one of the oldest neighborhoods of Seattle. In the cool of Fran’s chocolates, I sketched this latest astronaut of the “Astronauts on the Town” installation.
This is Star Stuff by Abigail Kinney Maxey. It is inspired by a quote from Carl Sagan: “The Earth and every living thing are made of star stuff.”
Oh, yes. I did buy a small amount of chocolate! And one of the staff recognized me from when I was there with the group of Urban Sketchers earlier this year. We had a nice chat about the Museum of Flight events.
A couple patrons looked at my work and tried to convince me to take a commission to sketch a building they are buying. I declined, but said I knew a few others who might be interested in the commission (Steve Reddy)!
