Parthenon, Athens

This is another rare work done from photos that I did not take myself. A good friend of mine, born in Greece asked me to paint this for him. Hopefully, I will get to take my own pictures of this great place one day.

    It is amazing how people built such beautiful architecture building with hand-made tools. Unfortunately many slaves died in the process. Beautiful painting! I also love the sky. I hope to someday stand on these grounds.
