Trip Bulgaria, 2007

The following paintings are inspired from my 2007 trip to Bulgaria. I had a great time visiting family and friends and of course looking for interesting subjects to paint. Although Bulgaria has become quite modern now, I was still able to find some rural villages up in the mountains where life is somewhat primitive. Some of the places I had a chance to visit were Boazat, Batoshevo, Apriltzi, Sevlievo, Balchik, Nesseber and Triavna. I took lots of photographs and completed the paintings as soon as I got back in the US.
