Flowering Mykonos 8F (45.5 x 37.9 cm) by Shoshu Fuji


What unfolds before you is a painting that captures the tranquil beauty of the Mediterranean.

In the foreground of the painting, blooming bougainvillea adds a vibrant splash of color and sways in the gentle breeze.

Elegant balconies with white columns provide a striking contrast to the iconic blue waters of the region.

In the distance, yachts rest peacefully on the gentle waves, and beyond them stretches the traditional whitewashed buildings of the Mykonos harbor. The blue sky stretches out before you, and everyday life goes on peacefully beneath it.

The painting perfectly captures the balance between serenity and activity, transporting the viewer into the Mediterranean sunshine and sea breeze.
