My love for high wind, teal shades of water, and ragged shorelines originated here, in Etretat, France (in 1975!). This is a magical place, where many painters, especially the ones associated with the Impressionism period (such as Corot, Monet, Manet) have painted this area, and those paintings can be found in many fine arts museums around the world.
