Bell Tower at Patmos

Bell Tower at Patmos: 11x14, acrylic on canvas board, 2010
On the small Greek island of Patmos, one of the major must-see sites is the Cave of the Revelation. This is where John saw the revelation of the end times that led him to write the last book of the Bible. In present-day Patmos, the cave has been converted into a church. Above, the church bells rise and chime to tell the villagers the passing time. I reversed the gray and blue tones in the painting in order to pay homage to the blue-domed churches that speckle the islands of Greece. I may just continue on and create a full color series on the bell towers.
