Man in blue pin-striped suit

August is warm here on Hydra, we are still waiting for the Meltemi wind.

Here a new painting "LC in the Port, 1985",  loosly based on seeing the Canadian songwriter/poet having his coffee at the Sailing Café, wearing his traditional pin-striped suit in the morning sun.

Guitar man

Jul 27, 2014

A new painting: "Guitar man with white shirt".

We moved to a new home, to a house where I have a studio on the ground floor. My wife calls it a Man-cave. Anyway, I started to paint a little.  

Ohh, I almost forgot how to update my website, I have to shape up! Will do.
