This is the last plein air painting I did while in Greece. I really hope to go back soon! It is nice to look back to the color of the water, it brings good feelings.

  2. Celia - that blue water is just fabulous. Like Judy I can feel the sunshine - you did a super job capturing the light and atmosphere of this lovely place. I can see why you want to return. I certainly would. Hugs!

I hope everyone's New Year is off to a great start!
