Cat in a Hat

While driving around yesterday, I spotted this small Caterpillar equipment wearing a huge Santa hat! After meeting some friends for coffee, I drove back to the site to sketch it. It just makes me laugh.   It’s in Tukwila, on West Valley Highway, just east of Southcenter mall, in the sales lot of NC Machinery

I only did the drawing on site. It was quite chilly and I wasn’t dressed for it as I hadn’t expected to be sketching. Also, I was sitting on the sidewalk, very close to a busy 4 lane road with large trucks passing. I thought it safer to minimize the time there.

With it’s non-Santa buddies

Or maybe it’s a Santa-pillar?
