Three Seattle Art Icons

I haven’t been doing much art lately, so today I will post three pieces I painted this summer when I was out and about in Seattle.  These images are recognizable to any Seattle resident:

Black Sun, sculpture by Isamu Noguchi, in Volunteer Park
Fremont troll, by four local artists: Steve Badanes, Will Martin, Donna Walter, and Ross Whitehead. (It is crushing a real Volkswagen Beetle.)
Hat ‘n’ Boots, formerly a western-themed gas station, moved to Oxbow Park in Georgetown in 2003

One thought on “Three Seattle Art Icons

  1. I was so intrigued by the hats and boots I had to find and read the history. My first thought was of Paris, Texas. There, the city’s replica of the Eiffel Tower is topped with a big, red, cowboy hat, and its Evergreen Cemetery has a grave decorated with a far more than life-size statue of Jesus — wearing cowboy boots.

    Clearly, there’s no direct connection. Still…. the world is filled with wonders!
