"The town of Les Petites-Dalles in France was visited by my parents twice before my Dad died in 1979. They were very touched by the WWII history of Normandy, and took our 9-year-old son back there in 1977 to explore the entire coast of Normandy. This watercolor was shown in Dad's retrospective exhibit in 1989 at the Stary-Sheets Gallery. The beach, the houses, the impressive cliffs make for a dramatic painting."
