This is a painting to honor Greece. The Classical Greek philosopher, Plato, believed Santorini to be the true location of the lost city of Atlantis. Today, it is a popular tourist destination known for its amazing architecture. Most of the homes are whitewashed or lime-washed using light tints from the volcanic ash to reflect the rays of the sun. Those amazing white hillside structures also have blue roofs and doors to represent the colors on the nation’s flag.
The Los Colores Series use of expressive brushstrokes and strong hues reflect the colorful cities, people and cultures from various places around the globe. In my opinion, such places just make us feel more alive – they give us a view beyond the ordinary – and remind us that life is best lived when we are filled with passion.
