It's so easy to get stuck in my neighborhood. Cozy Ballard (and the north end of Seattle) meets most of my everyday needs and I end up staying in my comfort zone way too often. I frequent downtown Seattle, but tend to stick to my accustomed destinations.
Today I jumped ship and met the lovely and talented artist, Carla Sonheim and a new acquaintance, Elizabeth for coffee & chat, then walked to the Greg Kucera Gallery to see the Deborah Butterfield show. If you aren't familiar with her work, do check it out.
passed this street art on my way to the gallery - love the colors
first saw her work years ago in Eugene,
when the horses were just sticks, now her sculptures
are cast in bronze after she creates them
these are big mares - at least 7 feet tall
Tonight our girl graduates from the UW's Jackson School with a BA in International Relations - the ceremony is being held downtown. Between meeting new friends in the morning, viewing inspiring art, going for cocktails at the Fairmont and celebrating our lovely daughter in the evening, I'd call this an especially perfect day!
our wonderful girl
