Statue of St. Albert the Great (St. Albert the Great Church)

Spring is here again and it's time for sketching outdoors. While bicycling in South Minneapolis today, I saw a granite statue in front of a church at 32nd Avenue and 29th St. of a priest holding an emormous frog. Luckily, there was someone nearby to explain that St. Albert the Great was a thirteenth century scientist. The sculptor is Mary Ann Lohman.

For more about St. Albert go to the church website.

Click on the sketch to make it bigger... and happy Easter.

  1. Albert has a lot of personality in your sketch... he looks like he's just had a great idea and is about to step off the pedestal and make something interesting happen! Thanks for sharing your talent. Erin Sim, office manager at St. Albert the Great
