Peasant’s Last Supper

Dolce & Gabbana ads + Song of Achilles book + David Ligare oil paintings + my visit to the Grand Bazaar in Istanbul and the south of France + Last Supper = The marketplace I always wanted to paint but couldn’t find the right composition

This is one of the largest paintings I have done. The fisherman, the farmer, the lemon pickerthe baker and the water girl. I have family in Romania that works the land and have done so for generations. It is always nice to go back to drink fresh cow milk and handpicked tomatoes.

Just in time for EASTER!

2015 in Retrospect

In 2015 I graduated Bates College and traveled to Budapest, Prague and Vienna. I came back from Europe with some new cool ideas to paint!

I was inspired by hand-painted plates at the Royal Apartments in Vienna, Austria.

The Ruins of Gaziantep – 2013 (aged 20)

In celebration of my blog’s one year anniversary, I decided to post this painting of the interior of the Gaziantep Mosaics Museum in the southeast of Turkey. This is based on a picture I took while I was there. I replaced the ceiling with the night sky. The museum collection consists of mosaics, pillars and walls excavated in ancient Zeugma (an old city within the Gaziantep Province). All the artifacts are Roman in design and nature.
