Frank Lloyd Wright at Dollar City

I drew this in the parking lot where my hairdresser's shop is located. The whole shopping complex was rebuilt last year and this roofline is from the new design. Whoever designed it was well-influenced by Frank Lloyd Wright; note the flat overhanging rooftops, the chunky geometric buttresses, and the parallel lines and stucco planes. "Prairie" architecture comes to urban Northern Virginia, so that Dollar City can have a classy home.

Drawing is about 6" x 3", ink on sketchbook page, parking lot plein air.
