It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...
The National Museum of the Marine Corps just decked its halls with all sorts of Christmas cheer last night and this morning, hanging garland all around and decorating several Christmas trees in Leatherneck Gallery.
Today I had the pleasure of helping transport and hang one of our best works from the Art Collection, a painting by WWII combat artist Cpl Tom Lovell of a Marine as Santa (we affectionately call it "the Christmas Lovell").
Here are Alice and Joan, of the Art and Exhibits sections, levelling the Lovell:
Here am I, confirming the level on the Lovell...
May your Christmas be merry, and your holiday season decorated with joy...
I am a landscape and portrait painter of the Classical Realist school, inspired by the masters of art history as I paint the world around me.
I am currently serving as a Combat Artist in the US Marine Corps.
