Watch Lion - Budapest, Oil Painting

I was a tourist in Budapest. While my dear husband visited a dentist - and this "adventure" is not for the faint-hearted - I went for a walk. He is brave, I am not.
So I was in the role of a tourist. I chased themes to paint. And the first and most famous tourist attraction is the Chain Bridge. I never have a thought about painting it. I always left that theme for street artists. Have you ever looked into the  eye of the watch-lion? Wow, it is harsh, frightening. It is not a kind of pussy-cat. Eye-catching.
It was fun to paint. May be it would be a good idea to open my eyes to the city?
