Tribute to my friend David B.

Michel TYSZBLAT, painter

“Allongé à plat ventre sur les galets de la plage de Cagnes sur Mer, je contemple la perspective qui se déroule en rase motte devant mes yeux.
J’ai dix-huit ans et je ressens une forte impression qui agit comme un déclic.
Parfois les choses importantes de la vie se décident en quelques secondes, sur presque rien, et c’est vrai que ce jour-là je décide d’être peintre.” – M. Tyszblat


Swinthe, 1973,  polyuréthane on canvas, size: 80 F (146 cm X 114 cm)
