Finished Work for Friday

After deciding to ditch the family travel photos and move on to other things, I found this photo of a monastery in Greece built into the side of a cliff on the Cycladic island of Amorgos. It was mysteriously appealing to me and felt that urge to paint so I went along with it. A twenty minute session and I was finished with this work.

There's more going on, but I'll save it for later. See you on the flip side.

  1. Like this...very much!...plus intriguing, a monastery in the hillside, I can see why you chose to paint it.

    1. Thanks Ann. There are many Greek monasteries in inaccessible places like this, carved into a cliff, a cave, or high up on mountains.
