After the Funeral

2/22/20 Lake View Cemetery

Lake View Cemetery on Capitol Hill is well known because Bruce Lee is buried there. The last time I was there years ago, I wasn’t paying respects; I was just looking for something to sketch. On Saturday I was there to say good-bye to a friend’s father, and I found a sketch again as we waited for the family to arrive.

Afterwards, we were all invited to a reception at House of Hong in the International District. A platter of roasted chicken included the hapless bird’s head. I rarely get an opportunity to study a chicken’s head closely – it was too good to pass up.


  1. The chicken head looks like the chicken is asleep. I guess I would think of sketching it too. Definitely too good to pass up.
