Greece, Leonard Cohen and I


The theme of this art work is influenced by the wonderful late Leonard Cohen, who lives in my past life and my heart. I hope the love I felt for this man and his music shows through? I travelled to Greece and ended on the same island called Santorini in the spring. It was Easter and there were carpets of daisies everywhere. Leonard writes in his book of “Longing” about his stay on a Greek Island with the beautiful Marianne, his life long muse. If you look hard into the painting, you will see her sitting in a rocking chair. Paintings that sing the loudest are when they are painted with deep feeling of love and joy. I hope you feel this too?
