Â Some ofÂ my favorite painting subjects are the windows and doors of Provence:
"Wash Day" Oil on Canvas, 7"x5"
For me, the charm of Provence is in every day life.Â I love theÂ Provencal colors--Â the gorgeous combination of the buildings' earthy hues contrasted by brightÂ and cheerfully painted shutters and doors.Â And most of all I enjoyed theÂ people. By American standards they might seem a little reserved, but they areÂ but warm and lovely. They possess an aesthetic that really appeals to me; takingÂ care to fillÂ their homesÂ (and doors and windows!) with touches of simple beauty, rich with color, texture and quality.
