French Windows

Close ups

Oil on 5x7 archival canvas panel.

I came across these French windows in the Reference Image Library at the great Wet Canvas site. It inspired me to simply cut loose with slashes, dashes, and gobs of lively Spring colors.
I really enjoy doing expressive painting that invites the viewer to hang around and
discover the paint surprises taking place...to interpret.

  20. Très belle peinture. Dans mon village il est fréquent de voir au contour d'un chemin une petite maison aux barreaux de fenêtre similaires à ceux de votre toile. Fenêtres souvent très basses où une floraison champêtre s'enchevêtre sur le devant.
