This is another one of the Romanian paintings for my grand-kids. This was buid in 1812, during a period of wars, when everyone wanted to occupy Romania for its riches(grains, gold, oil, salt, coal, etc). This is a "house fortress" where everyone went in in case of an invasion. In the last few years has been restored and now is a museum. It is located in the Southern part of Romania, not far from Bucharest.  :painting: Doina

Wow, Doina.  Great art AND a history lesson.

I forgot to mention yesterday about the very perfect tile roof on your windows picture.

I look forward to opening up every day.  Always something amazing here.

You folks are wonderful!!


A day without art is like a day without sunshine.

 >:D Mea....don't worry about the 'paintbrush' remark, just shows where your thoughts are...painting! As it should be.  ;D

Doina, another lovely structure. One thing I am seeing is each one that you do is getting better and better. Your perspective is improving with each one. us an education as well.  O0      :clap: :clap: :clap:
