Just got back from a long weekend to the most beautiful lake in central Greece, Lake Plastira and am so pleased to share these pictures with you! but first let me say, that this week's challenge for summer of colour is orange! It's a colour that I use often in my work! In this painting, the elephant theme continues and I decided to play with BB's hair and give her a more fun, summery look :)
This weekend I took a train trip! to central Greece, to attend in a music festival in the most amazing place in the mountains, Lake Plastira. It was only for a weekend but I feel so rejuvenated, it feels like I was there for at a week :)
The village where I stayed at, Pezoula, is on the mountain and is surrounded by fir, oak trees and chestnut trees!! I have never seen a chestnut tree in person, have you?
There were rivers running through the forest and villages and you could drink the spring water! amazing!!
There was even a water mill, where the local ladies wash there blankets and rugs!
This is the entrance to a local tavern.
This what I saw in the forest..
I saw a dragonfly!! same colour as my tattoo!
The music festival was right on the lake.
a greek chicken roaming the streets! hahaha
This is what came up to me while I was having coffee down in the valley, in Karditsa!
Hope you've enjoyed this little tour and are having a great summer! Next week I'm taking a two week vacation, which is something I haven't done in years. I'm off to the Greek islands and counting the days!!
