My wife and I were in Iowa last weekend visiting her sister. We escaped the snow and cold in Michigan and while in Iowa the temp hit 60 and I got outside to do some sketching.
This is a sketch of the grain elevator that serves as a landmark for my wife's home town of Indianola, Iowa. The elevator has been there for years and since it sits on top of a hill it can be seen from quite a distance. Anyhow, I was out looking for things to sketch and the elevator caught my eye.
