It is SO much more than a furniture store. What an unusual place! From the talking moose to the animatronic chickens there was so much to sketch it will require several more trips! I could have even bagged the USk flickr weekly theme – “Organs” – as there was a small pipe organ! I didn’t sketch it first and then I had to leave for an unexpected meeting!
Lots of photos of this crazy place here https://redharp.smugmug.com/SketchOutings/2015-1216-The-Old-Cannery/
I was there quite early so I wandered the entire place. For my first sketch, I picked what I thought was the oddest thing there: Snoopy and Woodstock in the Sopwith Camel! Half way through drawing this sketch, I had to laugh at myself. I volunteer at the Museum of Flight in Seattle (my regular readers know this). I do a lot of sketching of airplanes there during my other visits! So what do I draw when I’m in a furniture store….. an airplane!
The entire showroom floor is actually several huge rooms. It was all decked out for Christmas. So my next sketch was one of those displays. Cow and sleigh.
We enjoyed free Keurig coffee. For our sketch sharing the store provided some fudge samples!
