Delphi - 22"x30" Watercolor Painting with Frame

Description

This painting is a 22"x30" (full sheet) watercolor painting, based on a personal source photograph taken during a college study abroad trip to Italy and Greece. The majority of the painting is done in Daniel Smith watercolors - though there is a touch of white acrylic in the mountainous background, and a short poem written on the left side of the painting in white paint-marker.

A white mat and black metal frame (custom made to fit the size of the matted painting) are INCLUDED in the price. The frame also has a plexiglass front, backing, and is ready for hanging.

The poem reads:

The Oracle at Delphi
Would sit in her Apollonian Temple
And See.

Even with the sun shining
My vision is not blinded.
I too, can see

What a beautiful place
This is.

I wrote this poem to capture the relief of being in Delphi after suffering from an eye infection for several days. I was so used to wearing contact lenses that I didn't even think to bring my eyeglasses on my trip as backup - just extra contacts. So when I got an eye infection in Rome and couldn't wear my contacts for a few days while it healed (and then a few more days, once my other eye also got infected), I was basically blind. I would take photographs just so I could see the landscape up close (on my camera screen) where I could see the image. I traveled through Naples, Italy this way, as well as Olympia and Napflion in Greece, and a few days on the island of Crete. When we got back to the mainland, my eyes were finally healed enough to wear my contacts again. Delphi was the first stop I was able to clearly see in several days.

I thought it was fitting that my eyesight should "return" to full strength on the very day that our itinerary had us in Delphi, the very place where ancient oracles were said to divinely "See" the future.
