Stin Kouzina Mas (In our Kitchen) was started over a year ago although completed only recently after re-working one entire section. I’m now, finally, rather pleased with it. In our kitchen tells the story – via many layers of drawings, paint, wax, acrylic transfer, text and handwriting – of a typical seaside taverna or kafeneon in Greece. From caique-boat to table, the fish is as fresh as can be – straight from the sea to the grill. The scene is similar whether it be Koroni – my local fishing port – or any working harbour in Greece and the Greek islands. Small, salty, fried fish, fresh from the sea, are consumed with a wedge of lemon and a cool glass of ouzo or tsipouro, whilst seated on a rickety taverna chair at a blue metal table, right by the waters edge. This video captures some of the later work-in-progress stages.
The original painting, which measures 27x35cm (10.5×13.5″) is available for £165 with FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING until the end of April only. Created with artist’s quality acrylics and mixed-media on 300gsm watercolour paper, the painting is unframed and is signed and titled on the back.
It’s so new it’s not yet available on the website, so do contact me soon if you would like to own the original painting.
Connected acquired its name after I asked for help in naming it over on my Facebook Art Page. Over 30 responses poured in and it was really difficult to choose from some great suggestions. I’ll be keeping lots of them on file and may use some for future paintings. When I do, a free mystery-gift will be sent to the person who suggested the name. (Andrew White – yours will be on it’s way to you after Easter!) Measuring 17x12cm (6.75×4.5″), Connected is a beautifully textured, acrylic mixed-media painting created on cotton canvas. It comes in a smart white aperture mount, ready for you to slip into a standard 30x21cm frame. It’s available for £79 with FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING until the end of April only. If you would like to give Connected a home, just email me asap.
Connected partners very well with Behind the Church which is based on a drawing of some washing hanging behind Logga Church. It’s the same size as Connected, is on cotton canvas and also comes with a matching white aperture mount. Both paintings are signed and titled on the back.
Behind the Church is available for £79 with FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING (until the end of April only).
If you would like to give them both a new home, you can purchase the pair for £150 with FREE International Shipping (Offer valid until the end of April only).
Please email me as soon as possible if you would like to purchase the happy couple.
This short VIDEO shows some of the work-in-progress stages in the development of both paintings.
