I had my mind set to put an old photo I knew I had [somewhere] on a new web site. I started looking, and two hours later had STILL not found it. But I did find a veritable treasure trove of old photos. The two above I used as reference for the two paintings. I remember starting the Santorini painting once, and not liking it. For some reason, I reversed my image, and re-did it, as you see it.
I also found some photos my aunt took about twenty years ago, when at a conference in Athens. She and my mother did a bit of traveling around, and having an extremely good eye, my aunt took some fabulous photos. Some of them have such depth, atmosphere and color, they almost look like paintings now. So I took photos of them, and downloaded them into my computer photo file, and I CAN HARDLY WAIT TO GET TO THEM!!!!! You will see them over the next few months.
