“The Skirmisher” by Robert Aitken was dedicated in 1925 to the veterans of the Spanish-American War. It has been moved to various locations in this intersection at least three times. A time capsule was recovered during a move in 1996.
A quick sketch, it looked like rain so I'll add color later.
Since they really did a number on my luggage last trip, and with the shoulder issues, I decided to treat myself to new free-wheeling baggage. It is the coolest shade of purple/ fuschia. Please, baggage handlers, be careful with these pretties!
Hey, I will be in the Naples, Florida area shortly, and look forward to bravely sketching in public! Any sketching recommendations for this area?
I *really* wanted to walk today, and the weather station said it wouldn't rain until 1pm. Well, I needed to clean the kitchen, and by the time I finished, it had started to sprinkle. Stubborn me, I thought, I'll just bring my umbrella, no big deal. But...the rain started coming down more and more. I finished my walk, came home and got into dry clothes, and decided to journal the day. You see, even though I got soaked, I was lucky to see a duck not often seen around here. A common merganser, I think, although I'm no expert. For me, it was worth getting wet! So how was your Sunday?
