Mom Post

This is a painting of my son in Greece on the island of the most beautiful sunsets in the world with a native Minoan:

..and this is my son now, doing what he calls "the girl jump":

Don't know what a "girl jump" is. But I'll take his word for it!

The colors in that painting are beautiful. The light reminds me a bit of something out of Maxfield Parrish work. Great phoenix, too.

thanks--I think you're right about the Maxfield Parrish reference,although he wasn't in mind when I painted it.
It isn't a phoenix--it's the creature that is painted on the wall of the throne room in Gnossos on Crete.

Would that be the island of Santorini?

Mia Wolff said...

yes, it is...have you been there?

I went to Santorini a few years ago (very off-season) and stayed in the Oia part of it - I can't remember if I'm spelling that correctly - at any rate, my abiding memory is finding the island very beautiful but being unable to find anything to eat on it since all the restaurants were closed.
