L’Assiette de fruits de mer. 2018

L’assiette de fruits de mer. J. Harms. 2018. 29 X 39 cm. Acrylic on paper.

A memorable day in the Crotoy, in the Baie de Somme region of France. A bright sunny day late last Autumn. My sister, a friend of hers , my mom and I packed a car and drove all the way to the beach. A lot of people had the same idea, which resulted in an hour long queue to eat sea food. But what a liberation when it finally came, that long awaited assiette de fruits de mer !

With “Les volets verts”, this represents another view from the bay taken from almost the same position but at another angle. I love to paint views from a higher ground looking down. This painting is the last one in my short serie on the lovely town of St Valéry-sur-Somme.

The church in St-Valery is situated on a hill overlooking the bay. From that point there’s a lovely view of old homes and a mile away, behind them , the shimmering lights of the sea.

Further along the bay, this yellow house really caught my eye. I had to paint it.

I am currently working on a serie of pictures I took 2 years ago while on a day trip to St-Valery-Sur-Somme, with my mother and sister. It was early July, hence the flags, and the day was beautiful. Ma seems to be carrying the sun on her back…
