Saints’ day. Augustine, the philosopher

Cherished friends, I’m not a believer of any religion, but a mere admirer of the Art that with its pretext has been done along the history. The stories of saints are almost like tales full of fantasy and often colorful too.

Thanks again for your loyalty to the Univers of the Sketches.
