The year is 1666 A.D and the great fire of London begins, over 80% of the great city was destroyed, including old St.Pauls Cathedral, which was later rebuilt by Sir Christopher Wren.:)

Here we can see the destruction of the Cathedral in the distance:(

Wonderful! It reminds me an old classical painting thereabout. :):):) Was the painter Turner?:rolleyes::confused:
Anyway we're pretty sure that it was absolutely certainly not Nero's fault at that time (since this occured 1 and half millennia later than the even bigger one in Rome that someone still, most likely erroneously, attributes to him ...:D)

What an incredible striking painting, Paul! It's just beautiful and very introspective for me.

Beautiful. I like how you use abstract way and dreamy/washy brush strokes to show the fading out St.Pauls Cathedral. :)
