Here is a complete listing with links of a ten part series on dining on the Greek island of Samos. I have now been there three times for stays of a month or more. I have painted on each stay. Here is a link to the last ten paintings I did in 2014. This time has also has given me a chance to sample many of the great restaurants on the island. The first three posts look at the smaller mountain villages and seaside towns. The larger towns are covered in individual posts. I started with Mytilini, the largest of the mountain towns and then Karolvasi, Pythagora, and Samos Town.
The island also has great local produce, meat, and fish and we did a lot of cooking at our friend’s home in Mytilini where we stayed. The series would not be complete without sharing some of the many sources for local food, both commercial and non-commercial. This produce also inspired a number of paintings that are shown in the last post along with their models.
