"The Tram"

SOLD

After a couple of days without any paintings done, here I am, back at work. First of all, I wish you all the best for the new year. I was in Ankara in the new year's eve. It was freezing there! Today we arrived in Istanbul and such a warm lovely winter day here. So another Istanbul painting. The tram in Kadikoy (Chalcedon) and a man breathing fresh winter air, enjoying the good weather. Done on oval board. A different experience for me.

Bayram, yilbasi, yolculuk, ziyaret derken resimsiz gecen bir kac gunun ardindan tekrar rutine donuyorum. Yilbasini Ankara'daydik, sevdigim sehir ama buzz gibiydi. Istanbul ise harika, sicacik surpriz bir kis havasi karsiladi bizi bugun. O zaman bir tramvay, Kadikoy-Moda hatti. Bankta tatli-serin kis havasini icine ceken bir adam. Oval tual. Her zamankinden biraz daha buyuk bir ebat (24x30), ilk defa oval yuzeye resim yaptim.

Kutlayamamistim. Kutluyorum: Harika bir yil gecirin, saglikli, mutlu, huzurlu...
