I spent two sunny days in Seattle with daffodils and cherry trees before flying back to the snow and below zero temperatures of Ontario. Seattle is a great city, one I have been wanting to visit for a long time and one I will return to. Of course I had to make the requisite coffee visits and do some sketching. In Le Panier I sat with a great Montreal couple who were very interested in my Lamy Joy pen, so I passed on the Goulet connection, simple the best place to buy fountain pens.
I spent Tuesday at the Seattle Museum of Art and the Miro exhibit (see sketches and review here from Gabriel Campanario) and then a trip on the monorail and lunch at the Chihuly gardens. It was too cool to sit outside to sketch the wild glass sculptures, but I did get a quick sketch of the restaurant window before the delicious crab cakes arrived.
