Thirty Years Ago.

July 22, 2010

It was a cold winter morning in Edmonton, Alberta, circa 1980. From my architecture studio window this apple tree framed my foreground as I gaze across the Bank’s parking lot on to Stony Plain Road beyond. I can still recall the “deep freeze” coldness of that winter morning. I remember I had my Rapidograph drawing pen in my hand and without hesitation I took a heavy card stock, (5.5” X 4” that was close by), and quickly made this sketch. This sketch is more than 30 years old.

    It may not be an interesting architectural or artistic sketch, but it reflects the ‘bighting coldness’ of one of Edmonton’s winter day. The apple tree tells the direction that the gale winds blow while the dark shadows emphasizes the starkness of the cold winter morning.
