The Blue Window
This painting is from one of the fishermans huts in the harbour town of Saint-Trojan-les-Bains, on the island of Oleron off the west coast of France just below La Rochelle. I'm reminded as I have said before of Walberswick and Soutwold Harbour in Suffolk, England, there too are the same huts and sheds some of which are utilised as fresh fish shops and cafes. I'd love to use one as a studio for a time and produce a series of paintings of the sea and the activities associated with it in that specific area, it would make an interesting exhibition!
