THOUGHTS ON PAINTING
This cityscape-rural piece by Romanian artist Ioan Popei depicts Santorini’s iconic, signature views of blue and white in a new light. The misty feel is reminiscent of the island’s slow, warm afternoons and begs the viewers to visit the shores of the world renowned Greek isles. A small, typical Greek Orthodox church nestled on the island’s cliffs is another testament of the unique culture and feel of the island. This painting is the perfect homey addition to a bright, open sitting room and makes for great company while lounging with a fresh cup of coffee or a glass of wine.
