“I don’t want to get to the end of my life and find that I have lived just the length of it. I want to have lived the width of it as well.”
Lighthouse in Chania city, Crete, Greece – 6″ x 11″ Watercolor & Ink
Oty hosted the WDE (weekend drawing event) over at WetCanvas and she
lives in Greece. This was painted from her photo reference. In the
photo, there was a beautiful horse and buggy, too. I may have to find
time to paint it later.
When I lived in Huntington Beach, CA, I worked for a company called
Omynee Industries. My boss, Tony Kardamakis, was from Crete. He
eventually went back to Crete and offered me the job of running Omynee
Industries. I had just moved to Oklahoma when I got this offer and
passed it up, but I have always been grateful for the opportunity.
This quote came from my wonderful little book by Ruth Fishel, Wrinkles Don’t Hurt, Daily Meditations on the Joy of Aging Mindfully. I love this book!!!
