Near Lindos, Rhodes Island, Greece. 76.2x91cm

On this day of exploring the beautiful Island I can around a corner to happen on this very domestic scene bathed in late afternoon light, where a little farm carved out of the limestone rocky landscape, its stone fences and buildings nudging against the pristine waters of the inlet near Lindos, 3 km from the City of Rhodes (Capital).

Once again I felt compelled to not lay too much of myself in the painting, leaving only the bare essential content, leaving only a hint of my presence by trying to express the understated activities of a sustainable life on an island whose crisscross history is one of possession and repossession and its barren appearance which hides mineral rich rocks and water tables used for sustenance, healing and beneficial properties not seen on the first encounters.
