Le Cannet, the old town hall now an art centre


The yellow building with the clock tower used to be the old town hall in Le Cannet and now, it is being used as an art centre. I have the great pleasure to go in there on a regular basis to do some painting and I just enjoy the walk in this very traditional old part of Le Cannet, North of Cannes.


Le Cannet : Le mur des amoureux de Raymond Peynet


I have started a series of watercolour paintings this Summer about the small village of Le Cannet North of Cannes. I go there on a  regular basis and enjoy very much working with a theme.

This painting is inspired by a very famous fresco done on the façade of an old house in 1990 by the illustrator Raymond Peynet and the painter Guy Ceppa .

“Le mur des amoureux” (the wall of lovers”) has become an inevitable stop for newly-weds, a symbol of joy representing a united couple flying over the Garden of Eden.
