When the magic happens…

I was walking back from shopping in Aegina town, having bought a microwave, kettle and two ring electric table top cooker – a surprise gift for my Airbnb hosts, when I decided to explore another path back to my Airbnb “home”. It took longer than I thought it would, so I tried to follow a little path through an orchard, as the shop would be delivering my purchases after they shut for midday. The path lead to a house so it was either a case of turning back and being super late , or cutting through their garden (naughty!). I reckoned as it was Greek midday quiet time, that they would all be sleeping, so decided to risk it . I ended up in a little dirt road , and there on the corner was the YELLOW HOUSE! I could immediately see the painting in my mind, but just hoped the light would still be in the right direction by the time I got back again later.

The Yellow House.  This oil painting is in a private collection., so not available for sale.  Painting by Ask , May 2019, in Aegina

Ask with her oil painting - The actual yellow house  itself is seen too  in the distance
Not the most flattering photo of me, but at least you can see the Yellow House that so excited me, albeit after the light had faded at the end of the day.
