Gallery exhibition 🔜

A Time of Art gallery representative contacted me with an offer to meet and discuss our possible collaboration. We took a trip to Kifisia, north of Athens center and where the gallery is located. We had a great chat and decided to work together.

On July 6th there will be a group exhibition opening and I am part of this exhibition. It is exciting to participate, it will be my first gallery exhibition. Looking forward to this experience and hope to have many more exhibitions in the future.

Have a great month! 🌻🍉

Kind regards,

Life events and a new painting. ✨

This past month was quite busy while spending time with family and friends, celebrating our wedding, moving to a new place, and finishing the latest painting “The Cathedral of Aegina”.

The painting of it started outdoors, right in the courtyard of the church. It was a new experience, to be out in the town while people were passing by and checking me painting. Although this church is situated in the middle of the Aegina town, it is very peaceful and serene there.

Until next time! 😊🎨

All the best,
Zac

Blooming Pear Tree, Aegina Greece 🌸

I completed a new painting "Blooming Pear Tree, Aegina Greece".

41 x 50.5 x 2 cm, oil on canvas

What a lovely time on the island - spring. So many blooming trees and flowers. This year it was raining a lot, so there were flowers growing that did not even come out last year. 

There are a lot of almond trees that bloom beautifully along the road we take to the main town. We had to stop and take some photos and videos of them. 

In our garden, there is a pear tree behind the pool that blooms as beautifully as the almond trees. I wanted to capture this bloom and the handcart behind the pear tree. 

Have a great month! 🌸😊

All the best,
Zac

Here is a video of the painting process:

New Painting! 🎨 Walking in the Olive Grove with Toby

A few days ago I just finished a new painting I'm calling "Walking in the Olive Grove with Toby".

40 x 30 x 1.5 cm, oil on canvas

Having a dog like Toby has brought so much joy to life. One of my favorite parts of the day is going on early morning walks in the olive grove. He loves to run up and down the rows of trees.

I started this painting outside but wasn't able to get that far before the light changed. I was observing the way bright sunlight landed on Toby's fur. Also, trying to capture the effect of seeing shade between warm sunlight.

Bring some of the country life in Aegina, Greece to your space with prints and more

All the best,

Zac

Country life so far

Even though my girlfriend and I had been living in a big city for pretty much our whole adult life, we decided to try moving to the country in Dec 2019. We found a house we liked on the island of Aegina in a small village called Tzikides. We were really uncertain about if we'd like it but it has turned out to be a nice experience so far. There are endless things I want to paint here and it's so quick and easy to get out in nature. There is a huge network of hiking trails on the island and one of them starts right near our house.

When we moved to the new house, I started looking around to see what to scene to paint first on the property. This scene with the lemon tree somehow caught my eye the most.

Later on, this view of two cypress trees caught my eye. I initially took a picture of it on a really foggy day but didn't think to paint it. Then, during a sunset in the spring I got the idea when I saw all these wild flowers and poppies growing in front of them.

Another scene I've painted is on the other side of the house, over by one of our acacia trees. I didn't know about these trees before but in the spring we all of a sudden noticed that it was just blooming with so much yellow flowers. Such a cool looking tree.

There are a ton of other things on the property I want to paint next but I'm probably going to do something else for the time-being.

Some other things I love about being in the country is having much more land to garden. We have a few garden spots, one that we started already is for potatoes. We planted about 30 or so. Soon we will plant more vegetables in the other garden as it gets warmer. Things like tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, cucumber, peppers.

I'm not sure if I ever want to live in a big city again. It's more healthy to live in a smaller town. Being 33 now, I've had my share of fun in cities. Occasionally you miss the conveniences. For example, I really miss ordering food for delivery—especially Chinese food.
