To celebrate the first anniversary of the Seattle Urban Sketchers ad hoc Friday sketchers group, we met at the same place we sketched a year ago: Gingerbread Village at the Sheraton. (We had a much larger turnout than the original five who showed up last year – yay for Friday sketchers!) At this festive, popular event, local architects get together with the Sheraton’s bakers to create elaborately detailed, often-animated gingerbread houses (although “house” is clearly an understatement).

After Kate, Nilda and I had lunch at Pacific Place, my plan was to sketch Santa. As luck would have it, he went on his break and wasn’t due back for another hour, so I decided to call it a day. That’s the second time in as many weeks that Santa has evaded my sketchbook. This is not boding well for my personal goal of sketching more than two Santas this year. . . but I still have 12 days until Christmas.
