We went on vacation to Greece on the island of Rhodes for several years. This is an amazing place. It seems that one can feel in one moment the whole history of European civilisation. Everything breathes slumbery antiquity there. Burnt out in the sun grass, old olive trees, quiet sea surf, rocks and goats. They are all over there. I admired their picturesque groups under the olive trees and took several sketches and photographs to better understand the details. I painted this little artwork already in my studio in Prague. This is surprising, but the color there can only be seen early in the morning and at sunset. During the day - only bright light and dark shadows. Here, in the artwork, precisely such a moment is depicted: goats graze peacefully under olives. The painting was painted in my favourite art deco style, by thin brush with attention to detail.
