A young couple is gazing towards the horizon, enjoying the spectacular view of the New York skyline, with the sun setting over the Hudson river.
Are they planning a fresh start in life and thinking of the good things lying ahead? Or perhaps they're seeing a great opportunity, just waiting to be taken.
Whatever cards life has dealt to the couple in the painting, the two give an air of confidence and optimism, looking forward to a beautiful future unfolding. No matter what happens, one thing is certain, they will face it together.
Caledonia Waterfall, Cyprus
A hidden gem...
A must place to visit in Cyprus is the Caledonia Waterfall high up in the Troodos Mountains. Theo's latest watercolour painting features a beautiful woman enjoying the coolness of this magnificent waterfall as she wades through the water.
Watercolour painting Caledonia Waterfall Cyprus 40cm x 30c,
We often take our visiting family to see this spectacular waterfall. You can reach the Caledonia Fall via a 3km long downward trail starting north of the fall. It is a breathtakingly beautiful but steep track, crossing the stream many times as you descend.
Make sure someone picks you up at the bottom, or be prepared for a steep climb up on your return journey.
Theo's sister felt a mini heart attack coming on, when it dawned on her that she would have to climb all the way up again to get back to our car.
Thankfully there is an easier route to reach the fall, albeit not quite as spectacular. Start in the village of Platres south of the waterfall, and follow a slight upward trail for about 30 minutes.
Fine Art America Billboard contest, your help got us in.... thank you
Thousands of images were entered into the Fine Art America Billboard competition this year.

In The Spotlight...
We had to be on our best behaviour when Paul Lambis, an award winning screenwriter, author and playwright (just to name a few of his accomplishments) brought down his team to our studio to interview Theo for the Cyprus Mail Good Living web portal.
It was a very enjoyable morning and you can check out the results from the interview below.
Theo's interview above was featured as part of a monthly series called Culturescope.
Culturescope is a Cypriot lifestyle and entertainment web show, highlighting the best of Cyprus with a focus on art and culture.

Talking of new horizons...
15 years later, the journey continues and our artistic adventures are still unfolding...
Thank you for taking the journey with us.
On that note, take care and until next time,
Anja & Theo
