We visited Mexico in 2005…down into the interior which provides a much better impression of the country than the border towns. Friendly and industrious people, clean cities and towns, festive surroundings . We want to go back. One evening these girls danced for us on the roof top garden of our hotel. What energy…and I tried to capture that in this painting.

Our trip to Greece in 1998 began with a short stay in Athens, then on to several small fishing villages. One was delightful and quaint Karystos on the eastern coast. The main downtown street fronted on the area where working boats pulled up with their catch and harbored there for the night. Subject matter abounded for many paintings like this studio piece from my own reference photo. I could not resist the bright red-orange of the boat contrasted against the cool blue water. Eye-candy!
In Oct. 2005 this won an award of merit at the Foothills Art Festival in Ohio.
