Whether you've reached this blog willingly or by force I'm happy to have you here.
ersi marina's workroom is always open to the public, even when I am not in. Sometimes I need to sleep.
And to paint.
And to play with my four cats.
My name is Ersi Marina and I live in Spain though I was born and grew up in Athens, Greece. I kept it all very Mediterranean.
This blog is a means to share my work and snippets of my life, as well as to be in contact with you all. I hope you'll enjoy your visit.

still missing the sea

Hello my patient readers. Hello my impatient readers too, of course! On 12 August I posted a photograph taken on the beautiful Spanish island of Mallorca and I mentioned how much I miss the sea. I still do. We are having a very hot August here and my Mediterranean-coast genes are thirsty for salty, wavy sea water. I keep reminding myself that August has never been my favourite time for summer holidays and that who wants to go to a beach carpeted with thousands of sun bathing tourists anyway? So maybe another seaside photograph can calm my anxiety and give you some pleasure too. Taken in Sitges, a lovely small town (and extremely popular summer resort) on the Catalan coast. Facing South, with the setting sun to the right, the windswept clouds and the leaning tree created quite a dramatic setting.

And please, those of you who haven't already done so, hop over to Natasha Newton's blog because she's hosting a generous fund raiser for Cancer Research UK. It's a fine gesture and she's particularly sensitive on the subject right now. Just read her blog. Good luck, Natasha!

Have a great week, everybody!



  1. Thanks for this, Ersi! Beautiful photograph, by the way. I also love the coast and fortunately we're only about 25 minutes away by car, so I can visit fairly often! Enjoy the last few weeks of summer. :) x

  2. Aahhh, salty, wavy sea water, that sounds so poetic and beautiful. It is nearly spring here but we are still having very cold weather so your description
    of warm/hot weather and (even though you are not at it) salty, wavy sea water made me daydream...thank you.
