Giclées | Dec 10, 2018
I am now selling prints of some of my paintings.

The art is produced with a technique called giclée which is a fine art printing that makes it possible to produce art in small series with very high quality, and at reasonable prices.  Printing is made on 310g Fine Art Paper.

Michael Brecker

Been listening to Michael Brecker lately and I made this water color portrait - thank you Barry Strutt for the inspiration.

Saw him with the fantastic Brecker Brother's Band already in 1980. Michael Brecker (1949-2007).




Hydra harbour | Nov 29, 2018 | Comments: 1

Pantelis is the boss of the Hydra harbour since many years, attending to all boats arriving and leaving the busy port.

Here's my new water color portrait. Size 25x36 cm (10x14").

Hydra | Nov 21, 2018 | Comments: 1

Thunder and heavy rain all night but in the morning the wonderful warm Greek sun came back, just in time for coffee.

Here's an old but quick water color sketch from down in the port. 

Water color and ink. 



Roy Hargrove

RIP | Nov 16, 2018

Roy Hargrove (1969-2018).

Jazz trumpeter and composer, and with a beautiful sound on his flugelhorn. Such a shame, he was only 49 years old.

My portrait in water color and pen on paper, size 25x36 cm (10x14").

This one is for Jonas Kullhammar.

Somewhere down the fantasy coast, at a place where the Ministry of Culture doesn't have to approve how you build and paint your houses.

Water color and pen and ink, size 25x36 cm (10x14").
