In the last few days an assignment from Dr. Pace to go to the South Texas Museum of History in Edinburg and select an object to base a 3D sculpture on.  In front of the Museum is an old windmill of the type used so long in Texas.  So I drew it … I photographed it … I tried to see how it was constructed to resist the strong winds in the Texas landscape.  It was sturdy.
