A Trip Down Artist Lane

While on our adventure to see the cathedrals of Kharkiv last weekend we also came upon a artist market in one of the parks.  Dozens and dozens of local artists had their creations on display and everyone had signs offering the opportunity to have our portrait painted.

There was a nice mix of portraits, landscapes, and some modern art.

You could even get some "pop art" paintings of Angelina Jolie or Al Pacino.

This painting below was my overall favorite.  I would imagine the title would be something like "Ukraine in November."

Along with art there was a display of great entomology frames of spiders, beetles, and butterflies.  Now to just do some research on U.S. customs rules of bring a dead butterfly back into the country.
