Prague is home to Art Nouveau. I did manage to see the Alfons Mucha Museum. Mucha was an amazing prolific soul. People know his graphic works but many are not aware that he was a great painter as well. When I was younger, I loved his line work and now that I've matured I enjoy the epic work he did when he painted the history of the slavs; enormous canvases done with such love and empathy. He lead a full life, working almost until he died. One of the reasons why I respect him did so much is that he was an outstanding draftsman in almost everything he did. Even the reference photos he took for his posters and paintings were works of art themselves. His pencil drawings were outstanding too. Here are some decorative building motifs on some buildings.

Monica; thank you! Everyone's vision of Heaven is unique and different. Mine is flying over cities like Prague at dusk, pencil, paint, sketchbook in hand, free to pursue beauty without the constraints of Earth. The light and color that bathes Prague at dusk is amazing. Amazing.
