An opportunity to exhibit my work at the 44AD gallery in Bath ,England.
As an associate member of the gallery this is a chance to present my paintings
and talk about my working methods to a group of fellow associates and resident
studio artists who are able to provide feedback. Along with fellow associate Jo
Barber we were able to display two contrasting styles of work.
Thanks to Katie O'Brien for her help as always.
Koutouloufari in Northern Crete is a village of approximately 600 residents, it is situated at the foot of Mount Pyrgias. I drew and photographed this impressive landmark many times and here are two works based on those images.
Mt. Pyrgias with palm - Mixed media on paper 10"x10"
Mt. Pyrgias with agave - Mixed media on paper 10" x 10"
To the Greek island of Crete and a stay in the small village of Koutouloufari,that along with the adjoining villages of Piskipiano and the "old town" of Hersonissos overlook the bay of Hersonissos on the North coast of Crete.
Some sketchbook drawings and photographs reveal a very "Cretan" way of life.
