How many times have we caught our minds to travel before the image of the horizon of the sea that sometimes can be calm and sometimes stormy. The same can happen to us in view of a picturesque landscape with tall trees, beautiful flowers, singing birds and the sound of running water. All that I feel and I hope others feel, seeing these pictures, take us far away mentally and arouse emotions in each person varies depending on what he has experienced in his life. This feeling is created, I try to pay through truly inspiring landscapes of the Greek nature, scenes of everyday life of earlier times to our own from our tradition. Occasionally, the inspiration may be through listening to a favorite song, a religious hymn, and we generally melodies that touch me. I do not know if I manage everything, but everything that I want to see through my eyes and try to portray a visual effect. In this effort, using different materials and techniques. And the journey in colors continues ...
