MDN for Mer du Nord of course.
This miniature of the North Sea in Ostend, Belgium is the sparkling mix of a sudden need to be in nature and find my peace ; our inner nature.
I went there in the afternoon, not knowing where I was going to sleep but I went anyway to paint. I wanted to stay there until the next day so that when I would wake up, I would see the rest...
I started to paint as the sun was beginning its slow plunge into the sea : oranges reflecting on the blues... Beautiful light !
In the evening, I received a message saying that someone could host me. A beautiful soul offered me his house and a friendship unites us since then. He makes boats ; he's a wood sculptor, a Carpenter... What a beautiful occupation. Nowadays, I still go to paint the sea and sometimes I stay at his place.
The next day, I woke up rested, the sun was shining and I followed the smell of the sea. A cocktail of deep blues reflecting the white of the sunlight... Seagles around me, people stopping by, observing, relaxed and go... Beautiful exchanges in nature, near water...
