Painting - Oil / Panel
Relaxing French Riviera style! The Martinez is one of the premier hotels in Cannes France, home of the Cannes Film Festival.
While on one of my painting excursions of the Mediterranean region along the south of France we stopped for a couple of days in Cannes the jewel of the Cote d' Azure. The film festival was in full swing so I sat in one of the many cafes that dot the main "Promenade de "La Croisette" and watched the world's beautiful people strutt their stuff. Along with some recognizable actors was this lady in her own world enjoying the solitude of the Martinez Pier. I was inspired to paint this piece in a very pristine realistic style which I felt suited the moment and it's location in one of the country's most celebrated cities. The painting is sort of a statement of our constant attempt to strive to achieve and create the perfect environment and ambience. While I take the whole thing with a grain of salt, the French in these parts seem to take this lifestyle quite serious.
