Couldn't resist sketching this brightly clad lady taking the lower road, passing by ancient looking steps leading to an upper road.

Nice Catch

Judging by the admiring crowd, this Bulgarian fisherman must have gotten lucky with the day's catch.

I spotted this little robin out my front window, looking over his shoulder at me.This painting was a difficult one since I intended it as a sketch only and drew it on hot press paper which doesn't handle layers or lift-offs very well, at least in my experience.  I love his sweet expression, curious but not alarmed. It makes me think of the lyrics to a song, "I was lookin' back to see if you were lookin' back at me."
