Before the Rain
Above: sketch of the Twin Cities Metrodome (Minneapolis, MN) as viewed from the alley behind Minnesota Center for Book Arts. (Pentel Pocket Brush Pen and Daniel Smith watercolors in a journal I made with Lana 140 lb. Hot Press paper; page spread 11 x 6 inches.) Click on the image to view an enlargement.
Last night after a meeting at MCBA I walked out to my car and couldn't resist sketching the huge, white, marshmallow top of the Metrodome as it peeked out between the buildings, glowing against the stormy sky. It was so windy I had difficulty holding my book. Rain did eventually come, but I was back in my car by that point.
