Navy Painter: Olivier Desvaux
What a beautiful and good idea, this summer series dedicated to painters of the Navy, so generously illustrated!
Your first guest offers me this week the happiness of rediscovering the light and the colors of “my” island and one of its most beautiful panoramas (island of Tatihou, Manche), the one that we contemplate from the mound which overhangs barely the quay and which offers a view of the Hougue tower, the end point of the bay of Saint-Vaast-la-Hougue.
Olivier Desvaux represents the Tatihou II when, at almost high tide, its wheels touching the inclined plane of the port take over from its propellers. His painting shows the transparency of the water, to smell the salty air, to hear the hum of the engine and the cries of the gulls… Thanks to him!
Very young retiree, here I am immersed in my best memories as a teacher: thirteen sea classes on this island which won over all the schoolchildren we took there. My memory comes back to me, after the surprise of the amphibious boat, the wonderment of our fifth-grade pupils in front of the beauties of this island to their measure, where they appreciated a certain autonomy although supervised, the pleasure of discovery, the taste for writing through the writing of a travel diary and, above all, another way of working and learning…
I come back to your article concerning automatic checkouts, mainly loads handled by cashiers. Some time ago, chatting with a cashier, she pointed out to me that you could lighten their load by placing the heaviest products as close to them as possible, avoiding the customer side. Perhaps you could pass on this simple piece of advice that saves those cashiers (or cashiers) pain?
