Settling in for Winter


“Settling in for Winter”

Oil on board, 20 x 20cm

Working on a new series of landscapes found in the Zagori region in N.W. Greece.  I have always loved this place in every season.  Wild, exhilarating mountains, deep gorges, exciting trails, old stone-built homes, luscious food, clean water and good people.  I highly recommend adding this area to your next visit to Greece. You won’t regret it. 


Back to Work

With all the holiday stuff happening I haven’t been back in my studio since last week.  Today I went down and cleaned up a bit.  Very therapeutic for me in that it is an energetic statement that I am readying myself for the next (loving) push in my painting.

On my easel I placed a seascape I am working on.  I put it aside last month to get my other paintings ready for the exhibit at Ktima Bellou.  Tomorrow I will begin to work on it again.  I will begin a new series for another exhibit coming up and also begin to work some paintings from the Mt. Olympus area for a summer exhibit.  I shall dive into the landscapes there and love every minute of it…..

Be well.

Exhibit on Foothills of Mt. Olympus

I recently got back from an exhibit I set up in a lovely gallery at a Ktima Bellou, a fabulous hotel on the foothills of Mt. Olympus. The main theme of the exhibit comes from the landscapes and seascapes around the Halkidiki area where I live.  I have yet to find a more beautiful place than Halkidiki to paint.  Of course there are thousands of places in Greece to paint.  This is one of most richest countries for the landscape/seascape artist (yes….. a workshop in the summertime is developing).  Mt. Olympus is famous worldwide and the Goddesses and Gods have my intrigue tied to this area.  With colors and canvas and brushes I will return here in the springtime to paint…..

Here are some images of Expressive/Spiritual and then Landscapes of Halkidiki:
