Sketching the historic 1921 CW Parker Carousel!
I went with the Portland Urban Sketchers group to Jantzen Beach to sketch the Carousel before it goes into storage later this spring for renovation of the mall. It was fun to listen to the music and see the little kids, some terrified but most loving the ride. Most of the sketching happened while the carousel was loading and unloading. We were all surprised by how many of the horses had their mouths opened with big teeth showing - no wonder some of the kids were scared!
