Artists Corner  - Starlight Tower

 
There are a lot of talented people at Starlight Tower either because of their elected professions or hobbies in general covering a wide variety in the fields of literature writing stories or poems as well as in arts painting drawing sculpting woodworking masonry flower arranging and so forth. And I think maybe I can safely add the sacred art of high velocity haute cuisine. Why not knitting crosseting tatting or embroidery? So I thought maybe is a good idea to add a section in our website where Starlighters can proudly display their achievements in whatever field they are engaged. I sincerely hope that shortly will be able to accumulate a good ensemble representative of your works of art and learn a little bit more about you, our neighbor. And certainly we will subdivide our arts section accordingly to cover all subjects.
Warning!
Strictly for illustration purposes, bellow are displayed some things I have done. This is NOT meant to be a personal website but one that represents ALL of us. So I do apologize for the content as pitiful as it is but is a good example of a visual exercise for both of us: You contributing by displaying your work here and myself as your internet architect making sure our website not only has good and solid foundation to build on many beautiful layers just as our beloved building and home sweet home Starlight Tower. And If you suspect I have a love affair just like all of you with that building, you are absolutely correct.
 


Painting illustrates sunset view from Starlight Tower's 9th floor. I did this painting 2 years ago before the St Pete Beach re-nourishment project started as you can tell by the absence of groins and open space at the rocks at the entrance of Blind Pass.
 
To post more examples and for expedience purposes I just grabbed my camera and bellow is the result. Please send me your material so I can remove all below.



The fountain at our Durham NH home where I got the idea from a public park on Park Boulevard with the difference that the Floridian fountain on top has a lady pouring water down on the fountain if I remember correctly. Evangelos and myself built the fountain and in addition I contributed the decorative tablets.
 


Detail of decorative plaque at the base of the fountain. Initially I had to create the original in plaster then made a mold primarily because it had to be done from concrete otherwise would not last a NH winter and secondly because I needed several of these plaques to adorn the base all around. The design in the plaque depicts Zeus's 2 griffins guarding the light of knowledge.
 


Concrete plaque with Acropolis in the background while Pericles speeks to the Athenians. Same procedure as above in creating this plaque.
 


The decorations on top of this window also made with concrete and same procedure.
 


Concrete mural on the base of a window consisting of several plaques out of Greek Mythololy.
 


Detail of concrete Caryatis or Caryatids as seen on the Acropolis Erechtheion and temples throughout Greece, female-shaped columns named after Goddess Artemis, supporting the roof. Well, in my case they do not support the roof but I like them just the same.
 


Detail of another concrete plaque also borrowed and copied out of the Greek Mythology and same technique.
 
Your pictures and description of your work to be placed here is urgently needed.
