La Mer

I painted this while living in the south of France for a while and gave it to someone who doesn’t have knowledge of art.

Strange how some things are universal though, he immediately identified it as Mary rising from the Sea, which was what I had in mind when I made it.

In that part of the world, and certainly where France meets Spain, there is a tradition of Mary(s) arriving from the sea. The next town is called Santa Maria del Mare.

Off course you can see what you like, don’t let us hold you back šŸ˜‰
