Behind the Scenes!

I continue my DRAW-NH! project, drawing all 243 towns in the state. Here I am standing in the road in Marlow. The monument in front of me is unusual because it depicts a soldier from World War l, rather than the Civil War as is common in many towns here.



And my version of the scene. Although I have no aptitude for making three dimensional art, I enjoy looking at and drawing monuments and sculpture of all kinds. I admire the skills of the artists. My paternal grandfather was a stone cutter, brave enough to take hammer and chisel to marble. I spent a lot of time with him and I think my love of stone and sculpture comes from these memories.

  1. Drawing that statute must have been challenging but the picture is simply amazing!
