A typical door in french village of St.Tropez, the sun drenched stone steps and the beautiful climbing vines are a standard landscape of the Cote d'Azur and the Mediterranean region of Provence. In painting this piece I was struck by the direct vertical sunlight, it seemed to make the old hand laid stone wall glow while the steps seemed almost too hot to step on. Here in in the northern latitudes of North America this kind of light only happens for a couple of weeks during the summer soultice in June and even then can not quite match the Mediterranean atmosphere.

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...
