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 !

While visiting Edinburgh castle, I came across a group of very interested tourists, truly absorbed by their guide. I liked the cluster they formed around the knowledgeable kilted man.

When I decided to paint a serie of views on St-Valery-sur-Somme, this particular narrow street escaped my notice at first. But while checking out the pictures again, I was immediately drawn by the red hues. I can feel the warmth oozing from those brick stone walls. I remember vividly how warm it was, and how lucky I was to visit a place with this quality of light to it.
