My sister is taking a study abroad program this summer and just arrived in Greece. She brought along a copy of my bookÂ The Artist on the Road: Impressions of GreeceÂ and was kind enough to take a few pictures of the sites I painted when I was there. How exciting to see my art book travel back to where it was created.
Note from my sister: “Unfortunately they’re restoring the Parthenon from your cover, but it was still very cool to compare. Also, we had taken apples from breakfast with us. I had your book open and one of the guys traveling with us asked why you had painted an apple, so I read him that part from your book where that woman gave you an apple. Then we took our apples out of bags and ate them. It was a cool moment.”
While I was painting theÂ Erechtheon, a Greek woman came up to me and commented on my drawing. Then she pulled out an apple out of her bag and gave it to me. She was so nice.
