BEAUREGARD  20"x 24" oil on canvas
Starting Minimum Bid: $800

There is no direct translation for Beauregard, but literally it means ‘beautiful look, which is what this village would be called in English. As the road approaches the village, each turn presents another spectacular view. In the fall when the colors are the most brilliant, the view is particularly moving. My inspiration here was to capture the brilliance, the depth, the perfect blend of nature and simple classic architecture, at a point when all the elements formed a perfect balance of form, color, and light, the vibrant warm colors of the changing leaves and the infinite cool tones in the distant hills brought this composition to life. Pleasing and restful, few places in memory can equal the splendor here. There are elements of impressionism visible in the foliage and the shadows on the road, while the crisp lines of the buildings and nuances in the distant hills add a striking depth.
