THIS PAINTING IS ONE OF MY FAVORITES.

I NAMED IT "OYSTEAR" BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE AN EAR. THE INSPIRATION CAME, WHILE I UNDERTOOK A RENOVATION PROJECT  IN ATHENS.

ON TOP OF THE ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN, I WAS COMMISSIONED  TO MAKE A PAINTING THAT WOULD BE PLACED IN THE FORMAL LIVING ROOM (PICS SHOWN), IN WHICH THEY WOULD ENTERTAIN GUESTS AND IMPORTANT BUSINESS CLIENTS.

THE OYSTEAR WAS MY FIRST PROPOSAL. THE MOTHER OF PEARLS REPRESENTS WEALTH, LUXURY AND AT THE SAME TIME IT IS SO BEAUTIFUL IN A ORGANIC ABSTRACT WAY. I HAD SUCH A WONDERFUL JOURNEY PAINTING THIS.

HOWEVER IT WASN'T MEANT TO END UP IN THEIR LIVING ROOM. INSTEAD, THE CLIENTS CHOSE MY SECOND PROPOSAL, 'THE DIAMONDS, AS THEY LOVED THE IDEA BEHIND IT.

ALTHOUGH THEY 'REJECTED'  OYSTEAR, I DID IT ANYWAY AND LOVED THE RESULT.

MATERIALS: ARTIST QUALITY OILS ON COTTON CANVAS

DIMENSION: 70 x 100 x 2 CM
