MYKONOS MONDAY

This is an oil painting of an alley in Mykonos, done by my father. I really like the tranquil quality with the deep blues of the water and sky. I would like to wish my dad all the best as he is recovering from some cancer surgery last week. Thank God, he came through it well, but it has been a tough time. Hopefully he will be back feeling 100% recuperated soon. This original oil on board (as well as prints) is available. Feel free to contact me here with any questions.

My best wishes to your father in his recovery. My dad is also battling a very aggressive cancer. That is a lovely painting and a good start to Monday! x

Did not realize your dad was fighting cancer- thoughts and prayers to you and your family.

This image certainly does invoke a peaceful feeling! I have photographs a friend took from there hanging in our guest bedroom for that exact reason.

Glad you're back. Thinking and praying for your Dad, may he make a complete recovery and be back painting very soon. That pic of him with you and your siblings is so delightful.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear you father had cancer...but so glad to hear his surgery went well. It runs in my family too...and my husband is a cancer researcher, working his butt off to kill off this disease in our lifetime!

And of course, lovely painting. I particularly like how he used shades of lavender and purple instead of blue...not that I don't love blue in many images of Greece, but I think this is a nice change!

Anne - Mustering up all the prayers I have for a healthy, positive outcome for your father. Cancer seems to have struck us all one way or another. Just hearing the word "cancer" makes me tear up.
So now we know where your talents came from! Your father's painting is incredibly lovely.

All my best to your family.xxx deb
