Artist's Description

The Cote d' Azure as it is known in Fance has alway been the playground of the rich and famous, often featured in movies like David Niven's cat burgular film or James Bond's spy escapades it has graced film backgrounds for decades. In the early part of the 1900's it became the home of wealthy displaced Russians who created opulent estates, some of which can still be found in places like Niece. Saint Tropez has Bridget Bardot, Cannes has its Film Festival and Mote Carlo its royalty not to mention the annual Grand Prix. Countless intriguing stories can be told of the elite's social missteps and their various scandals but ultimately it is the warm climate that makes it all possible. As I walked by an alleyway not far from the famous Promenade des Anglais in the mediterranean sunlight city of Nice I noticed these french windows and the wonderful color contrast and shadows of the intense blue sky and warm venetian type coloured buildings.
