KM1088 Floating

Here is another painting inspired from my trip to Greece last year. We stayed in Nafplio on the Pelopennese.
The city of Nafplio was the first capital of the modern Greek state. Named after Nafplios, son of Poseidon, and home of Palamidis, their local hero of the Trojan war and supposedly the inventor of weights and measures, lighthouses, the first Greek alphabet and the father of the Sophists.
There were many colorful boats were anchored in the harbror that I photographed throughout the day as we wandered around town. I knew I wanted to paint this one as soon as I saw it.

6"x4" original oil on linen unframed
$75.00 + $10.00 shipping and handling
