Nice, France

Nice, France

I love Nice! I have now visited this city on three separate trips and it is always beautiful and fantastic. Wonderful art, sunshine, sea, great food, love the flower market - if I could move anywhere I would move here.  I love the Matisse and Marc Chagall museums, the flower market and two of my favorite restaurants ever - Le Festival de la Moule for wonderful bottomless mussels and L'Ovale for the best duck cassoulet I've ever had.  It's also been a very inspiring city for my art!

Cote D'Azur, France

Three visits to the French Riviera and I've covered a lot of territory. Nice and Monaco, naturally (some gambling at Monte Carlo) but also Menton and Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat to the west of Nice, and St Paul de Vence, Cannes, Antibes, Le Cannet and Cagnes sur Mer to the west. 

I visited the homes and museums of many of my favorite artists including: Matisse, Renoir, Picasso, Cocteau, Chagall and Bonnard.
