In addition do being what my Jewish friends would call a mensch, Joe is one talented artist. He has captured detail that the rest of us would have missed, and he's created a unique collection of memories. Frame worthy.

I am impressed! What a wonderful keepsake of your vacation. Has Joe always been an artist, or was this a skill discovered later in life?

Wonderful talent--I've always envied people who can translate what they see onto a blank canvas......

Oh my goodness! What an artist!! I think sketching is the ultimate art form. You will definitely have to have ALL of those framed and put up on your wall! I hope you have a large wall!

Joe is very talented! I would be framing a montage of his sketches and displaying them.
