You Can Lean on Me

Kindness is a fascinating virtue. It is one quality we can all afford even when we are broke. Consider that everyone can afford to smile more. Everyone can afford a hand shake, a hug, a prayer or well wishes. Most can afford a glass of water and few can afford to give money and things. The bottom line is that everyone can afford to be kind. Kindness will cost us though. But the cost is whatever we have at the time. So it is affordable.
It is true when they say that the world we have today is the one we created for ourselves. So whatever you see today in the world that you don't like, it is a direct consequence of human action or inaction. If we want better, we have got to do better and be better. Sometimes acts of kindness aren't in what we give, but the things we try not to do. So if hungry children show up at your door step for instance, don't put them in cages. We can certainly afford not to do that.
I found this fantastic view towards Les Isles de Lérins on the track that runs around the coastline in the Cap d’Antibes. Had to tackle the tricky coastal path to get to this spot but it was worth it. 🏝🌊
This was done in a bit of a rush, as the wind was getting up, but I hope I caught the amazing light. I can see some 'Fauve' colour influence creeping into my painting. It must be the South of France that does that to me! 😉
The painting was completed in my studio. Oil on @clairefontaine_officiel oil paper, mounted on board, 42 x 42 cm.
J'ai trouvé fantastique cette vue des îles de Lérins depuis le sentier qui longe le Cap d’Antibes. Le chemin pour y arriver était difficile mais le point de vue en valait la peine.🏝🌊
Cela s'est fait un peu à la hâte parce que le vent se levait, mais j'espère avoir capté l'incroyable lumière. Je peux voir une influence des 'Fauves’ s'infiltrer dans ma peinture. Ca doit être le sud de la France qui m’inspire! 😉
La peinture a été complétée dans mon atelier. Huile sur papier huile @clairefontaine_officiel, montée à bord, 42 x 42 cm.
