We met in a different section of Fremont today. There is about a 4 block portion that has a lot of interesting industrial subjects to sketch.
However, I first went "off piste" and went over to Theo's Chocolates to sketch the first of 24 "Astronauts on the Town".
As part of The Museum of Flight's 50th Anniversary celebration they
have launched this public art project. It features 25 six-foot astronaut
statues, each painted by local artists and displayed in public
locations. The website has a map. My summer goal is to sketch them
all. There have been 3 deployed so far. This is "Happy
Constellations" by Fin’es Scott
Before heading out today, I looked over the suggested locations and picked Fleur de Lis Garden Ornament as my favorite. It was an odd building that almost seemed to be a tent.
we met this morning at a coffee shop, I noticed this large tug boat in
dry dock down the street. I still had some time, so I got in my boat
sketch for Urban Sketchers' weekly theme!
there, I ran into Michele sketching the same scene from her car. She
has a custom set up to turn the driver's seat into a mobile studio:
We met back up at Way Station Coffee to share out sketches.
Then a few of us went to lunch down the street at the very funky Drunky's Two Shoe BBQ
Others sketched the chainsaw chandelier. I sketched what was in my
field of vision: the water table on which sat a fern with a horse
jumping out of it!
