During our Skopelos Printmaking in Paradise workshops last year, we witnessed a fabulous full moon rising over the bay on the Summer Solstice.

Pam and I sat at one of our favourite Skopelos tavernas on the paralia (waterfront) and watched the Palouki mountain intently for its appearance last night during dinner. The skill of the artist...
