Algeria is a beautiful country. With family in the city of Oran, I visit Algeria, but not as often as I like. In this painting, I try to represent the earthly colors of the landscape, palm trees, and olive tree barks. In an arid country, sand and earth can be red or orange. The mountainous landscapes offer variations of grey, beige, or white colours. The light is so powerful, the colors are so strong, so flashy that they can even hurt the eyes. I am half French half Algerian, I know how proud the French are of their country, I wish that the Algerian people could be as proud of Algeria. It is up to the artists to do such a job.
