Atina is a small, fortified town with a long history.  It is located near Cassino, in the Abruzzi region of Italy.  My wife's people came from there, so we visited it often.

About Jon Lucas

I'm a retired Master Mariner, living in Bothell, Washington.  My job took me all over the world and we lived in many places outside the US.  Many of my paintings reflect those places. I have no formal art training... just took it up as a hobby that I could pursue on long voyages.  When we lived in Singapore I got especially interested in Chinese watercolor technique, later tried pastels, but now work mostly in oil, sometimes underpainted with acrylic.  Lately I have tried a few pure acrylics.  Still can't decide if I like it or not.
