ASK – ARTIST: My World Shared With You

Paintings by Elaine Ask

The first painting I ever sold was in 1970 to one of my college lecturers, then in 1972 I went to live in Greece, where I held my very first Solo Art Exhibition in “Gallery Arsa” -(Γκαλερί Άρσα) in November of that year, then a further 7 Solo Shows every year thereafter until 1980 inclusive as well as participating in many group exhibitions in both Thessaloniki and in Athens. Thus began my love affair with all things Greek

I love the play of light and shade how it divides this painting up into complex patterns. The couple The are neighbours of my Greek friend Elli. Sadly the old man in this picture has since passed away.
