Kirtland Temple and graveyard, Kirtland Ohio

I had a chance last week on a business trip to Cleveland to go out to Kirtland and visit the old town that was settled by Mormon pioneers in the 1830's.  I had never walked through the graveyard before and I was pleased to find old headstones of family members who died in the 1830s around that time.  I sat in the passenger side of the rental car and painted this gouache sketch of the graveyard and temple in my Moleskine sketchbook.  You can see where I painted across the fold.  As you can tell, it was a cool overcast day.
