I’m Posting about Snow Piles over on Urban Sketchers—Twin Cities

No new post here today, but I didn't want you to miss my snow pile posts over at Urban Sketchers—Twin Cities. In February I found a very "worn" snow pile, before all the recent snow. Just after (or rather during) Tuesday's snow storm I sketched our barbeque grill in the yard. Yesterday I had a […]
