Today’s painting.  Basilica Sacre Coeur sits right at the top of Montmartre and can be seen from nearly anywhere in Paris.  This is the view from the back.  The front is impressive but there are hundreds of tourists and more pickpockets per capita than in any other place in Paris.  If you’re standing in line to get into Sacre Coeur and the person in front of you is not a pickpocket and the person behind you is not a pickpocket, it means you’re a pickpocket.  🙂  Seriously, though, it’s one of the most beautiful churches in the world with one of the world’s best locations.  A must see!

UPDATE: Finished off the sky today and put in some blue highlights.  They work in the world of paint!
