7th Street Watchers

This stone statue featuring two faceless figures, stands beside one of the main streets in my hometown of Oregon City, Or. I walk past them often on a morning walk and I have always wanted to paint them. This week I noticed they were surrounded by gorgeous fall color, so I took some reference photos and proceeded to paint. I love how it turned out! Painting the suggestion of all the little street details was great fun.

Turns out the statue has a name, which I only learned by looking it up a few minutes ago. They were created by artist Carole Turner, and she called it "Ancient Voices". I call them the "7th Street Watchers".
