Troodos Trail an oil painting by Theo from 2009. Theo's painting Troodos Trail represents the nature path leading to the Caledonia Waterfall Fall near the village of Platres in the Troodos Mountains. The waterfall is impressive and beautiful, and for nature lovers, a must site to visit whilst in Cyprus.

Dining Out in Larnaca from an artist's point of view

Let's Hit The Beach For A Moonlight Dance

Let's Hit The Beach For A Moonlight Dance

Through the eyes of an artist, here are a few beach destinations not to be missed when visiting Cyprus. Moonlight Dancers an oil painting from 2017 Sometimes it is not a question of where but when to head for the beach. A midnight dip into the sea is the perfect antidote to the stifling summer heat. Swimming under the stars, perhaps with a full moon tinting the water's surface, can hardly be beaten as a summertime adventure. Trust me and add this experience to your bucket list. You know what they say, the best things in life are free. Theo's painting Moonlight Dancers has captured...
