Seattle Sketcher in Shoreline

Thursday, April 28, 2011

Seattle Sketcher Gabriel Campanario, from our NewsPartner The Seattle Times, told me he would be sketching in Shoreline and asked for suggestions about unique places that really represented Shoreline.

Stifling the urge to suggest he sketch heavy construction equipment, I gave him a list of places that really seem to resonate with people here. His choice? The ponies.

Here's his sketch and you can read his comments on his Seattle Times blog.

Still have no idea why those ponies represent Shoreline

The ponies are ridiculous & embarrasing! Good sketch, though

Excuse the misspelling--embarrassing. Every time I drive by, I hope someone has move them to another, more hidden pasture.

Just because someone wants to give you something doesn't mean you should take it. The 'Ponies' make the point.

Since my family moved to Shoreline almost 15 years ago, I have enjoyed exploring some of the most beautiful parks and natural areas around: Richmond Beach, Boeing Creek, Kruckeberg Garden to name a few. We laugh when we pass the ponies, not just because they remind us of the Barbie ponies I played with as a girl, but because they seem comically out of place in the community. I would urge Mr. Campanario (or anyone unfamiliar with Shoreline) to look beyond the silly ponies, there is SO much more.
