Found on Flootie: Urban Scenes and Cityscapes

Last month we featured art Found on Flootie in our blog article here. For August, we’ve found so many great artworks on Flootie that fit the theme of urban cityscapes. These artworks depict images buildings and people in US cities coast to coast, border to border. As well as scenes from such European cities as Amsterdam and Munich, Germany. Then off we go, all the way to Israel, to share some paintings of the city of Jerusalem.
