Another Painting

This time, from the north east corner of Ploscha Rynok, looking down towards the Dominican Church.

I had a brief chat with another artist, who's been painting around the square for many years. The chat was brief in no small part because of the limits of not speaking the same language. He showed me a press clipping of him painting in the square.

It's fun painting in such a busy place. Makes you feel like part of the action. Lots of people came up and had a look at the painting and several stopped to talk.

Batyar Day (Rascal Day)

Today is the day they celebrate “Batyarstvo” (an idle and debauched style of life) in L’viv.

Ploscha Rynok is heaving with people today, there’s live music, dancing and some deeply debaucherous foodstuffs.
