Ukranian Woman

We walk to museums, to look at buildings of particular interest, to lunch or dinner.  I can not help but look at the people.  Ukraine was part of Russia for hundreds of years but the area has been inhabited for over 30,000 years.  Who are they?  The ethnic group called ‘Ukrainian’ is Slavic, as are Russians, Poles and parts of the old Yugoslavia.  They do not seem in general to be quite as blond with super light skin tones as I noticed in Russia, but close enough.

Roofs of Kiev

Kiev’s architecture is impressive, largely from the 19th and early 20th with some Soviet Russia era contributions.  The city is built on hills, and on cliffs overlooking the Dnieper River.  This allows you some great views of the rooftops as you walk about.  This is an acrylic painting.
