1997. Arches 840 gr. Wet on wet and pen.

I painted this theme during a walk to the port of call,of my city Katerini, Greece,in 1997.My thougths were mixed and comfused. When I saw these two old fishing boats waiting to be repared, I wondered, what are these two propelers are talking together? Do they remember the adventures they lived, as we, me, do; desiring to live again our memories?Life is too short, so create and give love.

Castle Moil across the old Kyle Akin ferry slip (no longer running, since bridge opened in 1995) - we took the ferry to Skye back before the bridge and found the island fascinating. I made this painting years later, from my photographs and memories. Reflecting on the reflections, I guess.

Winsor & Newton on Fabriano C.P. 140lb

I did this quick sketch on site in June last year. This old salt rests near a naval base in Saint Mandrier, a nice fishing village, and also the name of the peninsula which protects Toulon harbor on the south side. Because of its ideally sheltered situation, Toulon has long been a bustling center for the French Navy .
