Glasgow Summer Sketches

During my short visit to Glasgow, Scotland I would stroll (sketchbook in hand) everyday from my hotel on the edge of Kelvingrove Park to explore Glasgow. I became acquainted with the stunning historic architecture, the museums brimming with varied collections, the extensive green spaces, and inspiring art. And I appreciated the warm hospitably of the Glaswegians I met; as the local signs say, "People Make Glasgow".   

Yes, it is an Elvis statue at the Kelvingrove.
The statue of the Duke of Wellington often has an orange traffic cone on his head.

The Kibble Palace in the Glasgow Botanic Garden.
