This work is hot, the heat permeating every brush stroke with just a few shaded places to hide from the Mediterranean sun. The view of France's famous port is from above, and the smell of pines and the brine of the sea refresh us. Below small boats bob in the marina. The sea is azure, shimmering, inviting, beckoning with a sense of longing and adventure. This work is painted black on the surrounds and can be hung without the need for framing if wished. The artist was a student in the region many years ago.
