This painting is also a composition of my memories of Mykonos. A patio of natural cut stone and walkways leading you to where you need to go “down by the sea.” The streets are much narrower that these in Mykonos Town and down by the Bay. Older, small three-wheeled trucks, the size of a motorcycle with a bed on the back, “beep” constantly as they wind through the town while delivering foods to bakeries, cafes and restaurants. All of the pathways lead down to the water or the Bay where large boats and fishing craft are moored in the Bay.
On the sea side is “Little Venice” a popular and well known area for movie spots, where restaurants line the seaside and menu items are too numerous to list. It is also a popular destination for “Petros” a large white Pelican revered by the towns people and who roams in and out of the kitchens looking for his daily diet of fish. It has been several years since our travel to Mykonos, so I hope Petros is still roaming.
There is another small print I will be including soon of a painting titled. “Petros in Mykonos”, which briefly shows Petros standing on walk next to a table, the table we sat at for our four-hour lunch. I learned that day from two brothers who owned a restaurant down by the sea, what it meant when they said “come sit we have a special for you today.” I have never seen so many different kinds of sea food and we consumed two days of our food budget, but look at the memories we carried home.
I envisioned this setting (painting) to be on the out-skirts of town near our hotel where homes and little shops and boutiques line the tiny streets and walkways. Many places in Mykonos display patios that sit atop or below roofs and I always loved their handmade awnings pots.
Canvas is stretched over an Oak wood beveled edge enhancing the 3-D effect of my Paintings. This oil painting is painted with knives creating texture and brush for detail.
