'' Love or nothing ''

My little muse at it again :)
    Here's a little peak on what I am working on for my exhibiton this summer. It's a 3D painting with a winged heart that will hang from the little window I created on the painting.
    I finally came up with the title and wrote my artist statement last night. I've been wracking my brain for weeks now, trying to come up with the title and last night as I was looking through my  work folder, I found this pop art picture of Daisy. Just perfect!!  My work is about all about love and relationships so...
'' Love or Nothing '' it is! Do you like the title?
The following is part of my artist statement.

   ‘’Love or nothing” is about finding happiness and love. Isn’t that what life is all about?! To be able to find our other half…our soul mate?.. but we all know that it isn’t always easy. The journey is sometimes long and bumpy!! Oh those bumps! The journey would be boring and flat without them.  
  Life has to be viewed with humor,  otherwise...
  This is what I want to convey to my viewers. Love or nothing at all!! We won’t compromise, right?! 
   Love is in the air, can you feel it?!
Have a great weekend, my friend :))

Every time I visit the Acropolis, I realise how lucky I am to be living in this city! I am in awe! Living here is not always easy, but walking under the bluest sky I have ever seen and walking on the ancient and traditional streets of Plaka erase every dark shadow on my mind...anything is possible, I tell myself as I walk on these cobblestone streets. I was walking around today with a smile on my face :)

I love the architecture! I had coffee at this beautiful old mansion, turned into a cafe and didn't realise until after I had left that it was the same place the Maris Callas had taken singing lessons!! I must go back and take pictures for you to see!  The outside was so ordinary...until I went inside through a small yard..downstairs through a wine cellar, to the ladies room. The whole stairway leading to the cellar was soooo dramatic as the opera singer herself.  Candles were placed on the stone stairway. creepy but dramatic. I will go back to take pictures.


As I was walking, I fell upon the cutest little shop that makes puppets. Shadow puppets are big here in Greece and Karagiozi (on the left side) is the most famous character in Greek folklore. He originates from Asia Minor and came to Greece in the 19th century.
Have a great week!!
