Festive lobby

Urban Sketchers Tacoma met at the Hotel Murano to sketch the lobby’s holiday decorations. Nearly everyone sketched the tree.

As I was on the bar platform a few feet above the lobby, several Air Force service members sat down to await their colleagues. These two, a LTC and a MAJ, seemed to be flight crew. I wondered why military were staying in such a high end hotel and then I remembered who owns the Murano…. one of 45’s cronies.

Of course, I sketched the tree, too.
