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.
