A Walk in Aix


Midday in Aix en Provence is hot and bright. Many people are eating lunch or spending time indoors at this time of day. But, it is a great time to explore the city due to fewer crowds, and the city's trees and gardens are at their most colorful. Warm afternoon light casts rich blue and purple shadows on the sidewalk and walls. Oil on 11"h x 14"w stretched linen

Valensole Lavender Fields


A moody sky over the cheerful lavender fields of Valensole, France, just before a thunderstorm. This is my first painting in a series inspired by my recent trip to Provence. Oil on 11"h x 14"w stretched linen.
