"Homes Beneath the Caves"

pastel 26" x 10" 2002

One of the reasons that Cotignac is known as The town with character is the large cliff above it. Here there are rows of caves, carved out by the prehistoric Troglodites. During the Middle Ages, people lived in them to find refuge from the roving bandits. While there I noticed a current use, as a garage for someone's Citroen. Progress. On a street of typical Provencal houses, this spectacular home, with its blooming garden, sits in this dramatic setting, overlooking the town. Imagine living there.
