    Borovsk is my hometown and I can tell you exactly who made all these paintings. They are all by that weird looking guy without a shirt sitting on a trunk of a car with little girl on his lap (his granddaughter). He drew it on his garage gate and by the way, he does not own a Mercedes J. As you can tell he’s much better doing sceneries than portraits.
    Some painting don’t’ mean anything, but some reflect Borovsk’s history and famous people who lived there.
    Some of the paintings contain poems, all written by the same lady.
