thanks for viewing

P.S. "neoplastic" means "cancerous" - it refers to the left wing

During harvest festivals in Rome, maidens passed out bowls of nuts as symbols of fertility... many traditions have sprung from this, including the distribution of candied almonds as wedding favors in the mediterranean. To help promote fertility.

As an aside, I chanced randomly upon your gallery. I adore your work.. it reminded me of that first spark of love toward art that I had as a child when stumbling across a discarded postcard with one of Dali's paintings on its face. ( So yes, I was particularly tickled by the homage given him. ) Please, continue to paint. And, for purely selfish motivations, please continue to share.

Hmmm... apple and almonds... if I remember correctly, both of those are sexual symbols, as are dragons/serpents. You seem to use so many in your fantastic art - am I right?

this one's weird, ''good weird (if that even exists..). It looks real, nice shading and colors. Good work Christos. 0_o

Art at its best.
