Art on a rare sunny November day

The old St. Luke's Hospital has a Walter Sinz 1929 statue carved by the Gandola Brothers. This was also a fountain at one time. People drive by and do not notice how many figures are there. Saint Luke the Evangelist is standing center, on one side there is a nurse, and the other side a woman and infant...and behind him a winged ox (the icon for St. Luke). There is a similar ox on the steps of St. Colman's church.
To-day was the first sunny day with near normal temperatures in more than a fortnight. It was a good day to walk and take pictures.
Baker Mayfield is fading away. Outside the Art Museum there was a chalk festival two months ago, even with all the rain there has been, the outlines of several drawings can be discerned.

Yesterday the temperature ranged from 26 to 28 degrees Fahrenheit, and the last warm day before that was Election Day (6 November). The scarf warms the sculpture.
