Bradner Garden and more

Yesterday was a fabulous day out.  I started with the Seattle Urban Sketchers Friday ad hoc outing.

Bradner Gardens Park was such a wonderful find!  It’s partly park and mostly P Patch.

There are so many whimsical sculptures.  I had to incorporate many of them in one wide spread.  The scare crows were so unusual!

I was not so happy with my second sketch, a view of the city in the distance.

We shared our sketches and had a group photo.


I ate my lunch on the picnic table under the shelter and then stayed to make more photos.  There are about 60 just of the garden!  Find them all here.

I made three more stops on my way home.  First was the new PCC Market in Columbia City.  Then a new restaurant opened in an old building. Finally, I went to a late afternoon demo at Daniel Smith.  See the next two blog posts about those!

    Nice sketches from your outing! I’ve seen some of those unusual scarecrows on other blogs since I follow several of you from out there. Looks like a fun day.
