MERRILL, Iowa (AP) - An artist in the small northwest Iowa city of Merrill says she’s trying to display her love of family and country in four patriotic murals she’s painting for the local American Legion.

Karol Holton is painting four murals for the Legion’s meeting room in Merrill, a Plymouth County community of 750 people just south of Le Mars.

Holton tells the Le Mars Daily Sentinel (http://bit.ly/1dgOE2h) that after Legion members asked her to paint the mural, she thought about what she wanted the paintings to reflect.

She settled on “The Four Seasons of Patriotism.” The work will feature a full sunset scene of soldiers raising the flag at Iwo Jima, a winter scene from Arlington National Cemetery, a spring image of Memorial Day and a Fourth of July theme for summer.
