"A La Chandelle (By Candle Light)

Title: "A La Chandelle (By Candle Light)
Description: This is Claudine, a beautiful young lady of French Polynesian origin who, with her husband Armand, runs a marvellous little restaurant just off the chic (and very expensive) main street in the town of Aix-en-Provence in the south of France – former home of Paul Cezanne. Their very reasonably priced restaurant is one for the gourmet and serves meals in a wonderfully romantic atmosphere enhanced by the mellow lighting from the candles – hence the inspiration for this painting. The work is painted in oil on a stretched canvas and is set in a contemporary dark mahogany effect tray frame measuring 88 cm x 68 cm x 35mm overall. It is strung ready for immediate hanging.

Artist Biography:

Born and brought up in the north-east of England I have enjoyed a life crammed with many things which are often out of the reach of most people. Some of these things add to my desire for perfection in my art and a great appreciation of life itself and what we see around us..
Although I have always enjoyed drawing and painting I have come to art relatively late in life – being too busy at earlier stages. I have experienced a range of careers and activities from engineer to P.E & maths teacher to paratrooper. Always up for a challenge and having a hatred of heights led me to taking part in rock climbing and at one point joined the Parachute Regiment!
As an artist I am largely self-taught and I am passionate in making observations in order to produce works of a very realistic nature – where the viewer can sense a contact with the subject – feel an ability to reach out and touch an object or have a belief in being in a painted scene.
My aim is to give pleasure and happiness.
