For 5 weeks, I made weekly drawings from observation in the minute of sunrise and the minute of sunset, facing east at in the morning at Yahara Park on Lake Monona, and west in the evening at the Tenney locks on Lake Mendota. The drawings are spaced apart according to the lengthening of the days, which grew longer by less and less each week.
