Fabulous Michael. I feel the cold and damp! v

Great , wonderful work! Beautiful composition and superb colors! f/v

Thank you Kiril!

Absolutely beautiful! Great job :) vote/fave

Yes, indeed. Very nice work.

Stunning piece of artwork! I feel what it might possibly feel like to be right there. Great artwork makes you feel something inside when you view it. This does it for me. Fantastic!!!

Thanks Tisha, it seems that the quick plein air sketches always come out better than the more elaborate studio paintings :)

Michael this so beautiful and having grown up in the area it is wonderful that you chose to capture a quiet serene expression so well to reflect the everyday beauty not just the Festival. I also noticed and appreciate as many of us you harbor different artists within you. A freer more emotional stroke here.

Beautiful Michael!! f/v

Congratulations, on The Publication of your work in - Artist News - an Internet Weekly...

A real beauty to share with us in this forum, as it is a very beautiful example of what fine art really is; Sometimes I do get to places just when God's ready to have somebody click the shutter.  ~Ansel Adams I just love this beauty, and thanks much for sharing! FAVE AND VOTE!

Love the watery reflective feel...Great painting Michael!

Splendid ! Your sensibilities in this painting are unique. There is a renewal of that, Monet, magic here!

Artist's Description

Painted on Location during the Canes Film Festival near sunset. I waited for the sun to come out but realized just in time that this scene would make a great painting. This scene shows the beach pedestrian promenade along the famous La Croisette bulevard where all the glitzy shops and hotels are located. When the weather is good, the promenade and chairs are filled with people enjoing the sun while below the wall are restaurants and private beach areas for the high end hotels across the road where one can rent beach chairs for the day, there is an old fasioned Merry-Go-Round further along and the Film Festival building is at the end of this walkway close to the main marina and yacht basin.

Thanks ___________________________________________________ Michael Swanson "The hands of a Craftsman, the heart of an Artist." Heritage Gallery, Laguna, CA I'm often told; "Your art is so real looking why not just take a photo"? Well yes, if I could not draw I probably would, however a photo rarely reflects the three dimensional world we experiences, how often have you been disappointed that your photograph did not turn out as you expected? Let me explain; in a three dimensional world we see things subjectively, photographs can only capture a split second of any scene which often disappoints and is the main reason...
