Rain King

Preoccupied with our need for rain (we were 10 inches below average rainfall by the end of May), I decided to draw my favorite sprinkler, the Rain King. I need/want to draw more for the sheer joy of it and because my textile process is so long from start to finish that I crave the more immediate gratification of drawing. It is such an interesting object that I know I will draw it again. Coincidentally, we've had several rainy days since June 4th, the day I sketched this.
