Parfois, au moment de disparaître dans les flots, le soleil lance sur l'océan une ultime et brève fulgurance: ce fameux rayon vert qui, d'après une légende écossaise, confère à ceux dont il a frappé les yeux le pouvoir de voir clair dans les sentiments et les coeurs.(Sometimes, as it disappears beneath the waves, the sun sends one last, fleeting flash over the ocean: that famous green ray which, according to a Scottish legend, bestows upon those who have seen it the power to see clearly into the feelings and hearts of others).
Jules Verne, Le Rayon Vert
Eric Rohmer's films have a soothing effect on me, and I find myself particularly drawn to them during the summer months. I enjoy immersing myself in the subtle details of his storytelling.
Le Rayon Vert made me dream to see the green ray. I've never witnessed it in person so I just painted it. It's as simple as that.
