Sirak on the Porch




What seems to be ages ago Al and I found a place to stay in this new city of ours.  A place where i will sleep at night, bath when i'm dirty, eat when i'm hungry and lounge when i'm lazy.   But during one of the long days of searching I came across a man photographing a large painting on his porch so I stopped to investigate only to find that the painting being photographed was being sent off to Sotheby's in London where some of the best art in the world is auctioned off.  Needless to say Sirak provided us with a needed "artistic relief" from the hard day we were having.

Check out his website, I thoroughly enjoy his portrait sketches.
