Windmills of Mykonos

Greetings from Mykonos, an island of constant winds. Greek civilizations have a long history of clever utilization of resources. The windmills of Mykonos are scenic as well. I am here drawing these picturesque and useful buildings on a bluff which overlooks the harbor. I enjoy the white buildings of this town. It is quite surreal. The white buildings serve a very practical purpose as well. The sunlight is reflected instead of being absorbed. This greatly reduces the heat city dwellers must endure, especially in places that receive a great deal of sun. Come see me and my sketchbook at my upcoming show “Vessels of Light” at the Turner Center for the Arts on June 12 in Valdosta GA  from 5-7PM
