MAISONS EN PROVENCE  26"x 21" oil on canvas  $1,800

The French have long been masters of the art of living. The French country home, the ideal blend of rustic charm and comfort, is a delight to all the senses and an inviting retreat. Soft yet brilliant light playing on the facade, colorful flowers and charming simple furnishings, all speak of hours or relaxation and enjoyment. One can easily imagine the soft, warm, and fragrant air, the hypnotic sounds of the coutryside, and the deepening colors towards late afternoon. Striking contrasts and brilliant colors, a myriad of form and texture, and the surrounding foliage and flowers all inspired me to paint this scene of vibrant tranquility. Many layers of paint were required to build the deep colors and contrast and create the play of shadow and light, each part complimenting the whole.
