Art Description

Painting: Oil on Canvas.

This painting represents the memories of my travels to Mykonos, rather than an actual place or setting. The composition is where some may live above shops by the sea much like my own street gallery years ago.

When we grow older it is our memories that sustain our best paintings. I hope viewers see this as a calm and happy place near the Aegean Sea, where people live and congregate for the day’s events.

The impressions that Mykonos left me with are in my paintings and my heart. This piece is done in oils and the white sides of the buildings are textured with knife. The stones on the "walk" are patterned like so many on the island, some are painted this way, some are cut stone from the island and placed as you see here. The emotion I hope you gain as a viewer is serenity and imagination.
