Feeding the ducks

We spent early Sunday afternoon feeding the ducks at Bothell Country Village, a quirky complex of shops, restaurants and gardens where ducks and even a few chickens run free. In fact, there's a big statue of a rooster at the entrance to this outdoor village. Unfortunately we ran out of time and I didn't get to sketch it. Next time. I promise.

El domingo al mediodía estuvimos dando de comer a los patos en Bothell Country Village, un extravagante complejo de tiendas, restaurantes y jardines donde los patos e incluso algunas gallinas corretean libremente. De hecho, hay una estatua de un gallo gigante a la entrada al recinto. Pero no me dio tiempo a dibujarla. La próxima vez. Lo prometo.

    Carlos me había hablado de tí, desde entonces me fijo en tus dibujos en el Seattle Times, como el de hoy el fast food. Tienes una nueva admiradora.
    Un saludo,

  5. Gabi, these are great. I always want to stop and sketch the geese near the mall(yes for some reason that's where they hang out), I think I may now!
