The One with the Barrel

The One with the Barrel
6 x 8 in., oil on panel

Happy 2016!  Most of us with kids at home are back to an educational system-imposed schedule at this point (can you tell I prefer having my daughters around?). As today is the day ours went back to school, it's my back-to-art cue (which I like almost equally as well as my girls, but really, my girls win). 

This is another little Provence piece in the vein of The One with the Blue Shutters. These names make such sense to me because this is how we referred to these apartments and villas while we walked around and admired them. Sometimes they seemed very similar, but close attention revealed that each had wonderful details and individuality that set it apart from the others (hmmm...kind of like my daughters!).

Love this Julie! I was in Provence in September and was in love with all the pastel colors. I have lots of pictures but have never gotten around to painting anything. You are inspiring! Happy 2016!

Thank you, Carol! I'd like to go back and simply paint! So many cool spots. Hope you get to dive in to some of your photos and paint!

This is lovely, Julie, and your blog entries are as well-composed as your paintings. I hope so see you at a paint out soon. My plan is to get out more with PAA in 2016!

Much appreciated, Marilyn. I hope to be out with Plein Air Austin more this spring as well. Thanks for the kind words!

Miss it. Perfect painting.

Happy New Year!

Beautiful textural surface, and great layering of warm and cool tones on the face of that lovely building.
