3 D paintings

Just a quick post before heading out for the weekend :)   It has been a crazy week, trying to finish these 3D paintings to take them for a presentation this morning, at the Benaki museum, here in Athens.  I was to go this morning..and of course..the metro decides to go on strike..  I rescheduled my appt, but I was working like a mad person all week!  oh well.. life in Greece is quite unpredictable at times. Lol  I laugh, because it's what I love about living here. You have to take some things in stride, otherwise you go nuts!
Anyway, ever since I started making these paintings in the shadow boxes, they've been selling real fast, so I took some of my older paintings and redone them 3D.  I think there is a trend going on here... Hollywood is remaking old movies into 3D so I'm copying too. Lol  "Titanic", "Star Wars" etc.
I am having a hard time photographing them, so any suggestions are most welcome :)
 "someone" really likes the blanket I'm working on!
Have a great weekend, my friend!!  Hope it's not too cold in your part of the world :)  we had a couple of flurries yesterday, just a reminder thats it's snuggle season :)


  1. These are wonderful--I can see the dimension--not a surprise that you're doing well with them.
    Love that last photo :)

  2. I really like the 3-D paintings, the extra dimension make them even more enticing. I love all your work though. I love the bright colors in your blanket. Perfect for winter. We are supposed to get a couple of inches of snow this afternoon, but that isn't too bad for Michigan. Have a great weekend.

  3. Very cute and you are keeping up with the latest trends. 3D stuff is so hard to photograph because of the shadows.

  4. Loving your paintings displayed this way. Also love your blanket and your beautiful dog. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

  5. What a great idea - must give it a try sometime! My son and I are making a film this weekend - we've cast his toys in all the starring roles!

  6. This is a great idea! It makes your charming work even more endearing! Perhaps take the glass off the front when you photograph? That may help. Hope you're having a good weekend, I really enjoy your work.

  7. Oh my goodness they are stunning!!! I can see why they are so popular! Good luck with the next week and your appointment! xoxo

  8. Love the 3D paintings and aw, you have a beautiful dog! :)
