Escape To The Sun!!

Escape To The Sun!!

This new piece of art takes us to warmer climates... a perfect escape on a wintry day like today. I am so pleased to reveal 'Greek Island'! 

I've been working on this for a while now and am absolutely delighted with the final result!  Capturing the essence of a place is at the heart of my work and after visiting the beautiful island of Corfu so many times, I just had to recreate a piece of it. Time stands still here and this feeling echoes throughout this work. A feeling of calm, a presence of nature and a view. An escape from the chaos, the biggest decisions being whether to dip our toes in the ocean or sit under the olive trees and simply watch the world go by. Maybe enjoying a cool glass of something and a few kalamata olives.... 

The little wagtail was a must. There are many birds to see in Greece, especially these cheeky chaps. I love their little black feathered caps and majestic poses.
