The large jetty of Les Sables d'Olonne, a small fishing port in the Vendée on the Atlantic coast. At low tide, the foot of the jetty is covered with algae. The rocks covered with kelp or mussels shelter puddles of sumptuous colours. The weather vane of the lighthouse indicates an easterly wind, a sign of good weather. The drawing on which the painting was based was made on September 9, 2018, around noon, on a beautiful day, between two piles of the footbridge leading to the pier.

Born in 1957, François Cusson is from Les Sables-d’Olonne and has lived and worked in Paris since 1968. The Vendée countryside, its paths lined with trees and ditches full of flowers was his first master: portraits of trees, views of fields, haystacks... Then Paris and its wonders: its churches, the Seine: portraits of bridges, quays, coffee shops... The taste of rare days when pure light like crystal makes everything shine, where the contours are brighter, the colours more subtle... especially being outside on these days to spot and sketch the subjects. And then in the workshop, to make the colours that close everywhere but rarely reveal themselves burst, to seize them and to decline them in multiple series, by expressing them more vividly without distorting them.
