A year later, while travelling in the Rocky Mountains, I experimented with mixing colors and discovered a simple technique of mixing shadow colors.
Through shadow colours one is able to create the illusion of light.
Whether I paint landscapes on site or from imagination, light and space are qualities I strive for to express in my work.
Montofoli in Greece, 70 x 100 cm, oil on canvas.
Although I've been painting for over forty years with over 150 exhibitions in America and Europe, I feel like I've only just begun! There are just so many ideas to explore.
They are patiently waiting in a long queue to be born through the strokes of my brush onto a two-dimensional surface.|
Presently, there are 975 paintings on my site. 147 of these are for sale.

Software developement for graphics and music is another creative activity that I am deeply passionate about.
The following images were made by a program I invented and coded.
It allows one to create interesting graphics and patterns by duplicating visual objects such as a circle or square and varying its properties such as its width, height, x-y position, rotation, colour and transparency.

Mandala in soft pastel colours with 60 spokes.
40 spokes on a red mandala wheel.
Thousands of circles change position, width, height and rotation to form this strange 12-spoke star.
Each spoke has its own unique character.
Thousands of lines make up this swirl.
Random lines with circles on top in random positions and transparencies.
Thousands of circles make up this spiral.
Each box is is composed of a set of black or white circles and squares randomly selected.
This shape was made by alternating black and white spheres that gradually decrease in size.
Mandala of letters and musical notes.
In the middle of all this crazy noise of letters, words and thoughts is the calm stillness of unconditional love.
