Agnes et Yves

Ma Vie en Bleu

Authored by Patricia L Herlevi

In hot pursuit of an affair with a Spanish Don Juan, Francophobe Agnes' plans derail by a French painter and transportation strike. Bonjour Paris!

Meet Agnes Cass, a jaded arts journalist and Francophobe residing in San Francisco. Agnes' initiation into French art occurs when the editor of Art World assigns her to cover French expatriate painters. Watching every French stereotype come to life before her own eyes, Agnes exposes the sexual exploits of the French artists. Meanwhile she falls in love with a flamenco guitarist on tour. As her life grows more intolerable she decides to escape to Spain. Destined for Barcelona and a steamy romance with an unsuspecting Spanish suitor, Agnes' plans derail when her plane is grounded in Paris during a transportation strike.

Agnes encounters Yves Gervais, a Picasso-obsessed painter going through a "Blue Period". His muse-turned-tyrant Anne-Marie launches a makeover plan for the painter that involves a real job, marriage and children. The more Anne-Marie insists on having things her way the more the artist regresses into childish behavior, seeking his freedom to paint above all else. Meanwhile an art collector takes an interest in Yves' future work. The painter grows desperate without a model. When push comes to shove, Yves breaks it off with his muse and woos the unsuspecting Agnes, but will frog legs win the day?
