It’s all Greek to me!

I found this original oil painting in a local charity shop.


There is a signature but I can’t read it. It cost £2.99.

I think it is a view of the Greek island of Santorini and I have a feeling that whoever painted it makes a living from churning out these works of art for tourists. Having said that, it is a really attractive, bright, well framed painting. It almost shimmers with the heat and the emptiness of the hottest part of the day.

Was it a souvenir of a wonderful holiday? Why has it been discarded? Did whoever bought it get tired of it? How could they? I wonder.
