across the prairies

Last weekend we were in the mountains, and yesterday I crossed a very small portion of the prairies between Edmonton and Lacombe to drop off some new work at the gallery there. I'm glad I left Lacombe when I did, because the weather took a turn and it would not have been great for driving. I started these 2 drawings last night, which were inspired by some of the shapes and colors I saw along the highway heading home:
