This is the Doughboy statue, erected to commemorate the WWI soldiers. I've done four urban sketches in the last two days, taking advantage of the gorgeous weather lately, but only this one fits on my home scanner. I'll try to get the others scanned tomorrow, but first I'll be out painting again. The forecast is sunny and 65, which is as good as anyone can ask the last week of the year, even here in the south.
It's been warm enough for me to take Merlin along with me. He's not as mobile as he used to be, so it's nice for him to be out in the sun, watching the other dogs at the park, and I really enjoy the company. We take a short walk when I'm done working, and we both come home happy.
