Paint

Hi everyone!
I know I haven't blogged for some time now but well so many things are happening and I can't find the time or the mood to blog.
Today I decided to do a short blogpost initiated by today's prompt in
                                                              Our Beautiful World.
Although I stepped down from the contributors of OBW blog for lack of time I said I will take part once in a while.
So it was just a coincidence that today hubby and I went to watch a shadow puppet performance by our dear friend, talented young man Odysseas Kanlis at Sofouli Theatre. The performance was excellent!And there is one more today so my local friends can see it too.



But imagine my surprise when while entering the bar of the theatre I saw two of its walls covered in painted frescoes of various famous actors and actresses, both Greek and international, some who have died and some very much alive.
I adored the paintings and took lots of pictures.
The painter is called George Salpigkidis and he is really talented.

 My favourite was definitely Tzeni Karezi, a famous Greek actress.
 Kostas Voutsas was really life like here.
 I found it so funny that Dionysis Papagianopoulos a Greek actor of years past is in between Marilyn Monroe and George Clooney.
 And Rena Vlahopoulou in between Smaragda Karydi and Johnny Depp!
 And George Konstandinou next to Will Smith.
 But I also found why Angelina Jolie divorced Brad Pitt. That's the man she is in love with! His name is Kostas Chatzihristos!
 The painter has brilliantly left an empty space in between George Clooney and Johnny Depp, my two most favourite actors, for me to take a photo with them!
 I really enjoyed looking at all those actors!
Today I am joining Our Beautiful World. Why don't you join in too?

You are so right - great paintings. The close up shots are really very good and you can see each portrait so well. Thank you so much for sharing with us.

Wow! Such talent! I especially think he captured Tzeni Karezi's expression perfectly. I LOVE her; what a gorgeous woman she was and SO talented, too. Thanks for sharing!

Happy weekend,
Poppy
