  • You thought it was spices? Not this time! While the rest of the world tends to paint their houses grey, in Morocco they bring life in colour over their houses. Can you pass by without taking a photo? I decided to record it on film and then paint its opened bellies.

  • Oil on canvas
  • 90cm x 60cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Landscape ~ Morocco ~
  • In one of the narrow streets of Chaouenne, I discovered that you can have all sorts of entrances: tall, small, blue or varnished, rich or less attractive. But what’s fascinating is that not one line is parallel! And some walls are built over ruins and all are covered with this blue cerulean paint, the street as well as the walls.

  • Terracotta pots outside a closed door? Who dares? In a small village one respects his neighbor. And what is under this carpet? In case you wonder . . . a bicycle to let the carpet breathe some fresh air.

  • This one was inspired by the Blue Pots in Chaouenne; where the old centre is entirely cerulean blue, I discovered this tiny little passage which is entirely pink!

  • 42cm x 59cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Morocco ~ Still Life ~
  • If you don’t count the white as a colour, here I used only 2 colours (two blues and some yellow). The blue on blue, though not contrasting, speaks much about the owner’s love for her plants!

Around The Corner in Morocco

  • Oil with mixed medium
  • 91cm x 60cm
  • Artwork ~ Available ~ Morocco ~ People ~
  • Is this man really that tall? Here is the contrasting effect of the man of normal size but facing a typical servant door at the back of the house, pressed against two high linear walls. Will this man use the door, or will he turn around the corner?
