Lighthouse in Chania city, Crete, Greece

Lighthouse in Chania city, Crete, Greece – 6″ x 11″ Watercolor & Ink

Oty hosted the WDE (weekend drawing event)  over at WetCanvas and she lives in Greece.  This was painted from her photo reference.   In the photo, there was a beautiful horse and buggy, too.  I may have to find time to paint it later.

When I lived in Huntington Beach, CA, I worked for a company called Omynee Industries.  My boss, Tony Kardamakis, was from Crete.  He eventually went back to Crete and offered me the job of running Omynee Industries.  I had just moved to Oklahoma when I got this offer and passed it up, but I have always been grateful for the opportunity.

This quote came from my wonderful little book by Ruth Fishel, Wrinkles Don’t Hurt, Daily Meditations on the Joy of Aging Mindfully.  I love this book!!!

    Love the brightly colored stones and the clouds that go outside the border.
