Gladiolus

Gladiolus, watercolor 36 x 54 cm
The Gladiolus flower is a symbol of moral integrity and power. Does moral integrity bring power!? I want to believe that, although sometimes it doesn't seem this way...

Doors

Door 1, watercolor 22 x 30 cm
Doors 2, watercolor 22 x 30 cm
Although I photographed these doors in Valletta, they may be from anywhere in the Mediterranean region. I painted them a week ago but didn't find the time to post them.

Maltese Fishing Boats

Maltese Fishing Boats, watercolor 54 x 32 cm (n/a)

Maltese Fishing Boat, watercolor 22 x 30 cm
I passed through the fishing village of Marsaxlokk on the east shore of Malta, during a sightseeing bus tour this spring. I was quite disappointed that we were not allowed to get off the buss and all my photos of these picturesque boats have an added blue haze from the bus window. This is where painting comes handy - I could enhance the colors and change the scene as I like it :)
