The Final Palmer House

This is a quick sketch of Potter Palmer's final resting place.  The Palmer House Hotel in Chicago was originally built as a wedding gift for his wife, Berthe. She's buried here too. I did most of this onsite but had to finish it up at home. It seems the ground crew wasn't informed that our Monday group had received permission to sketch in the cemetery and told us to pack up and leave. I hate when that happens. Being a peaceful group we complied but not before registering our disappointment with the manager. 

All in all, though, it was a delightful time touring the cemetery and getting a little sketching in while enjoying a beautiful day.


  1. You've done a great job of showing the verdant cloister of the cemetery within the big city.
