Shadows and Palms

Click on the title to view image within the blog/ Three weeks ago I was in a remote village on the island of Serifos, soaking up the ancient atmosphere and sharing the experience with 12 other lovely American people and one Dutchman. This was my 2nd painting and done just before we were to board our van and head back to the 'big' town where our hotel and dinner were waiting. The late afternoon sun created a huge shadow from the nearby palm and it was enthralling as it pointed to these small dwellings, the inviting roadway and the rolling hills beyond. This scene could be just about anyplace and the elements here are relatable in their simplicity. Thanks for being an armchair traveler  and hanging out with me.

Sunlit Stone Wall

Click on the title to see image within the blog/ Just returned from 2 glorious weeks in Greece and visited 4 islands plus a night in Athens to visit the Acropolis museum. It was completely delightful and my group couldn't have been better. On the island of Poros we stayed at the Odyssey Apartments and it was perfect. Classic construction with blue shutters and balconies and food that is out of this world. The owners adopt each of their guests and we are family forever! Here is a little watercolor of their colorful stone wall adorned with flowering clay pots. Hope you get to visit this wonderful place one day and escape to a haven of beauty, pampering and rest.
