water artist







Between the Olympic and Paralympic Games in Sochi, Russia I thought it might be fun to go to Turkey for a week to explore. It seemed like a much better idea than crossing the Atlantic twice in 6 days to experience the jet lag that comes from a 9 hour time difference with the added bonus of being able to  yell at my kids about still not having out away the GD  Christmas tree. I am one of those people who likes to be able to take an assortment of tours in order to get the lay of the land. I like finding out stuff – and it’s a process that I call recreational learning.   One of the things that interests me is art – not in the high falootin’ sense – but in how people express themselves artistically.

During a walk near the Blue Mosque, we wandered into a little gallery where the artist was expecting us and gave us a demonstration whereby he created paintings using drops of colour dropped into  ‘heavy’ water and then paper put on top to create the finished product.



Beautiful 🙂
