Patra Carnival

The biggest carnival in Greece is held in the city of Patra. It's always held on the last Sunday before Lent begins.  Wow is all I can say!! Everyone is a part of this huge festivity, from the very young to the very old..even doggies were dressed up in costumes. The whole city is decorated with bright colours and sculptures. Loud music everywhere! all the cafes and bars put their speakers on the streets! hahha It's one huge party that lasts the whole weekend.

The carnival consisted of about 130 themed groups and anyone can join, even last minute. Some of the groups are formed right after the carnival ends.

 Each group rents a space usually a vacated store, where they hold their meetings and dress rehearsal. I saw several stores turned into meeting places with all their info on the front door. Group number and what each theme was.
The whole experience was fascinating. What impressed me most was the old people were in costumes too. Its a huge parade that lasts several hours, so I take my hat off to these people :) I can tell you I am exhausted from all the partying and standing up for hours watching them.
I also had a bit of time to do some business and found this pretty gallery, called "Art Factory". My work is being shown there as of this morning :)
Hope you have a great week!!

The only excuse I have for being m.i.a, is painting like a madwoman and getting ready for my exhibition this summer, and having a bit of writer's block or should I say blogger's block. I hate it when this happens to me...ughhh
I finished my ''Blackbird'' painting and am quite happy with it. The little winged heart is made out of paper clay and is hanging in the window, reminding us that everything is about love..right?
'' Blackbird'' is one of four 3D paintings that will be in the show.
''Catch the fish and tame it" was next.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend my friend. I will be going to Patra for the biggest carnival in Greece and I'm thrilled since this will be my first time. stay tuned next week for photos.
