Yesterday I finally used the brushes and the canvas to start my first painting, which was a uplifting moment.
After spending some quality time with my travel companion, laughing and joking sitting on the beach, we explored a new part of the island and found ourselves a new apartment for the next two nights.
This morning I almost broke my back again while walking down the stairs of our room with my heavy backpack. Now we sit at the beautiful beach in the nice Cafe Evelyn enjoying a Cafe and waiting for the new landlord to pick us up.
If you ever come to Patmos, stop by Café Evelyn, not only are they very nice, you also will find my sketch hanging on the wall. I traded it for a drink.
Even though painting does not make my living yet, it definitely makes life very good.
