On Tuesday I went into Kingston, New York, to renew my driver's license. Afterward I stopped to do a watercolor-pencil sketch of J. Massey Rhind's sculpture of "Old Peg Leg" Peter Stuyvesant. Stuyvesant the last director-general of New Holland. He lost his leg in 1644 and replaced it with a wooden peg stuck full of silver nails.
In a previous GJ post on bronze weathering, I showed an oil study of Rhind's sculpture of Governor Clinton.
