“SUNNY SANTORINI”  (print #104)

“SUNNY SANTORINI” #104

While in Santorini I wandered up and down the cliffs of Santorini and many of the homes are built into or carved out of the Lava rock left from the eruption of a volcano, many centuries ago.  The curves and the crevices made it possible for a unique kind of architecture that would be painted white.  The formations are all natural and every square inch was carved or constructed from the lava rock.  It is beautiful in such a simple way and they call them “traditional homes.”  Almost every home has a chair or two and a table along with flowers like Geraniums in abundance.  Most shutters, doors and railings are painted cobalt blue.  The original painting is sold.
