This piece is inspired by my heritage and love for travel. I decided to combine the softness of watercolors with the boldness of Santorini architecture. I wanted to capture the reflection of the sunset on the white buildings and the iconic deep blue circular roofs. This piece is dedicated to my mother, who is very proud of her Greek roots and has paintings of Greece that her father made for her on display throughout our home. I was lucky to be able to visit Greece for the first time before the pandemic hit, and miss travel very much and hope to experience something like this again.
