6 x 8 in., oil on panel
Another piece from our time in France. Though this is a simple scene, I was so over-stimulated with beautiful landscape there. Since I began painting a few years ago, the very first thing I notice when I visit a new region is the trees--and then the colors in the landscape, which added an entirely new aspect to travel for me. I chose to study this familiar scene because it was a family trip with little time to paint, but I'm definitely looking forward to a trip back someday to work on the less familiar aspects of the landscape there.
