French Memories, oil painting canvas, colorful figurative art, woman at beach, semi-nude female figure Riviera

French Memories

Oil on canvas, 20" x 20" 

SOLD to a collector in Texas

The original version of this scene struck me as too staid so I decided to create a more colorful, playful version. This is the other girl's younger, more spirited sister who just had to see the South of France for herself.


  1. this is brilliant, solid and classic.

  2. Your work is fantastic!! I especially love the figurative work - "I am here", "woman at beach reading" & "sounds of the sea"
    Very unique style - refreshing!

  3. Hello Marie,
    I enjoy your work with the figure very much.

  4. Beautiful colors and shapes... and figure as well!

  5. Hi Marie

    You nailed it on this one. Realistic enough to be fairly literal, but not so much as to be a portrait. I like the planar structure of the face.

    I'll keep watching. Thanks, Ray

  6. I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don’t know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

  7. The previous comments say it all. Classic is a good description.

  8. Marie,
    Beautiful work! I love your figues, lush and fluid.

  9. she looks just like she is contemplating the right way to start a piece of prose. Lovely work.


Thanks for commenting on my art! Marie
