Turquoise Painting

I was lazily walking with Hera the other day when I realized that a nearby framing shop is holding a clearence sale. I usually dont find the taste and quality of the paintings on framing shops match mines but on this case I was totally wrong.

I found this wonderful painting among a stock of others.



Well there was a 50% discount and plus I used some of my bargaining skills and it was a real bargain.. Now I put it on our bedroom but soon it will find it real place and will meet with the turquoise waters of the Mediterranean. I will take it to our beach house.

The painter Atilla Susoren has a web site. It is written there that he started painting at a later age for therapy. I am glad he did so that we could all see the talented artist in him. Photo is from his website: www.atillasusoren.com

  7. How perfect to hang in your beach house. The painting looks almost three dimensional with the colorful sails set against the blues of the sky and water.
