Copper Kettle / Study

Color! The richness and variety of the orange in the kettle, fabric and flowers are complimented by the blue green of the foliage. To my eye this is irresistible!

View of the Sanctuary at Epidavros

Back home after a month in Greece, where I was visiting family during a hectic time for the country. The base of family love and the glories of the country were in strong contrast to the current political and economic turbulence.
This was painted as I sat under an olive tree ( and on fallen olives ! ) next to an old wall , with the columns of an ancient sanctuary of Asclepius, the god of healing, on a slope in the distance.
 The artifacts of the ancient civilization are everywhere, history lives strongly next to the present in Greece.
