This is the town of Cassis in Provence, southern France. It was
lunchtime and many people were enjoying a glass of cool white wine and
some lovely fresh seafood at the restaurants along the harbor. I remember the sent of the ocean and the fresh seafood. And I remember
the sounds of seagulls and calm music playing in the distance.
I just love to stroll around Paris and take in all the sights and sounds and find interesting places to paint. In this painting I decided to paint the people out for an afternoon walk in the largest square of the city - Place de la concorde. The bronze fountain is called "Fontaine des Mers". I just love the warm colors of autumn in this painting and the memories will stay with me forever.
