Moonways – Mediterranean Nights
Oil Painting on canvas, 40″ x 30″ (102 cm x 76 cm), September 2011
The idea for the picture came from the vacation that I spent with my family in Croatia. When one visits a place like that ( and it could be also in Italy, Greece, Turkey, France, Spain, North Africa of Near East) one can feel the magic of the place where realty is mixed with dreams, and history with today. The architecture, climate, air and sea, voices and sounds, smell of salt in the air, and colors, colors. Whenever I visit those places I am back into history, walking the streets that the emperors walked, sailing the seas which the ancients sailed. I am also going back to my own history because I was born there.
