12 x 12 inch original oil painting on stretched canvas, unframed.
This painting depicts a glimpse of the fishing port Cassis in southern France, right on the Mediterranean Sea. The muted and pastel aesthetic of the boats there create a unique scene against the usually intensely colored Mediterranean waters.
"Every image I paint is the result of photos that I have taken in my travels around the world, many on private sailing experiences.
During a visit to Cassis on the Mediterranean coast of Provence, FR, I was struck by the fishing boats in the harbor painted in the same palette hues as the village buildings surrounding it. As an avid sailor all my life, I had never seen an entire harbor full of pastel colors." - Laurie Chase
