New Ghost Army Auction "Guard Duty" by Harold Laynor

Harold Laynor Ghost ARmy

“It seemed we were spending half our war years on guard duty” said Laynor, "in rain, slime, sleet, snow, whatever. You had to keep awake. I recall putting match sticks in our eyes just to keep our lids open, so we looked awake.”

Guard Duty,” a 9” x 12” watercolor  by Ghost Army artist Harold Laynor, is being offered for auction to benefit both "The Ghost Army" film project and the Laynor Foundation Museum.  It is a wartime study that became the basis for a later oil painting.
