It has 30,000sf and nearly 200 vendors and it takes hours to look through.
There was way more stuff I wanted to draw than I had time for, obviously.
Plus, I also wanted to do a bit of shopping.
Eventually, I got overloaded by the sheer volume of stuff.
So I just sat down randomly and drew whatever was in front of me at one particular booth.
We couldn't use paint inside the store, so I snapped a photo and added watercolor later at home.
We definitely need to return -- it was a great place for rainy-day drawing,
But here is what you really want: more cute Pippin pics!
He and Truman are getting along just fine.
Chloe, however, is still not sure about him.
It was sunny on Sunday, so I popped down to the Montlake Fill, where I spotted this Red-tailed Hawk:
It heard Pippin squeaking (he squeaks/squeals when he's bored, which is whenever I stop to look at something), and did this:
Maybe the bird thought Pippin was an especially big rat. We quickly moved on.
Later that day, Tina and Nicole and I went sketching at Gas Works Park, where the temperature broke 60 degrees! Very pleasant to be able to draw outside.
It was also warm and pleasant on Monday. I took the hounds to Green Lake Park, which is very popular with walkers and joggers and cyclists for its 3-mile loop trail.
Pippin got lots of socializing practice in, and though I stuck him in the stroller for photos (otherwise he doesn't sit still), he did walk about 2/3 of the way around.
There was a big flock of American Wigeons on the lake, which decided to fly up just as we reached them.
A beautiful day for a 3-mile stroll.
I paused about halfway around to take a little rest and sketch break. Of course, neither dog wanted to sit in the stroller while I sat there -- and it was a bit tricky to draw while they were on my lap.
But I managed!
Now I am all caught up, and will return to the regular once-weekly Monday posts. Have a happy weekend!
