Painting in the Light of Chania, Crete

For the past four years I have been working on watercolor/gouaches on paper during summer/fall visits to Chania, on the island of Crete where I was born. The light there is vivid, warm and intense, which influences my work. I paint in one location during different times of day. The light is magical, gentle, soft yet also unrelenting and persistent.
