After a light breakfast and coffee at a small cafe, we bought a few groceries.  We planned to stay at the Plage de la Gravette beach all day.  Nothing to do but lie in the sun and cool off in the waters.  The sea peacefully rippling over the scorching sand as we enjoyed our assortment of local wine, cheese, and fruits.  The perfect end of the day came when the sun set the sky on fire.  

This painting would look best in a space that is red, yellow, green, blue, purple, black, white, grey, beige, or wood

Michael Kraus was born on the industrial shoreline of Muskegon, Michigan. After earning his Fine Arts Degree from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, he attended Grand Valley State University for his graduate degree. From there, he gained varied experiences from the Chicago Architecture Foundation, Art Institute of Chicago, Hauenstein Center For Presidential Studies, Lollypop Farm Humane Society, and the Children's Memorial Foundation. And every place he worked, he had his sketchbook with him and found ways to be actively creative. In 2014, Kraus became a full-time artist by establishing Mike Kraus Art. Since then, he has sold hundreds of paintings that are displayed in nearly every state and dozens of countries. Currently, Kraus lives in Rochester, New York with his beautiful wife and goofy dog.
