The Mediterranean landscape of France and Italy are very similar, the main difference is that French architecture use more medieval stone while the Italian buildings are mostly plaster. The Cote d' Azur streets are also often simple stone while the Romans used shaped and cut stone. All this makes great painting details that artists can get their teeth into when creating textures with brush or palette knives. In painting this scene I wanted to show the texture of the building materials and the hand laid stone walkway that someone long ago had spent considerable effort to create.

"Paintings from the Heart"
My paintings reflect the world I live in or want to live in with no grandiose statements. With three primary colors I give you truth in the disguise of an illusion, as the pact between artist and audience is always an unspoken illusion.
Whatever our purpose on this planet or the universe itself is something I cannot fathom or attempt to understand. I therefore focus on what I can relate to and what I see that makes me happy. I hope these efforts will also help for you to enjoy the everyday things.
I accept serious commissions...
