About

Contemporary Landscape Mediterranean Green & Coral Aloes and the City of Menton This piece was painted at the Maria Serena Garden, which is on the border between France and Italy, on the French side, overlooking the Mediterranean. Charles Garnier, who is the same architect that constructed the Opera of Paris, built the villa on this property. This estate is used today only for official receptions, and is only open to the public on Tuesday mornings for a guided visits. The site on the property that I chose was right in front of the villa off the gravel driveway, where there is a nice view of the bay and the city of Menton. On the painting day, the distant city was almost hidden in the mist with violet hills rising in the background. It was a very humid grey morning, as you see by the light, but as the morning progressed, the clouds lifted, and the sea became a soft blue contrasted with the foreground plants. I wanted to show the very delicate movement of the aloes, so sculptural with the tendrils of dead branching tumbling and the stark coral flowers pointing upward to give the composition a vertical feel.
