|French Fields, Acrylic on paper|
The inspiration for this painting was born in the fields of southern France. Last summer I was blessed to be able to spend a week at www.hautbaran.com, painting with Bill Farnsworth. It was a dream come true to wander around the Quercy region of France & have time to take lots of images as well as paint. I know I will go back to those shots again & again. There is something hypnotic about the poppies in the fields of France, followed closely by sunflowers & lavender...
Being able to travel with my husband at this time in our lives is a huge blessing. Our health is holding steady & we have the luxury of having the time to go. I do not take it for granted.
I am grateful for the many blessings of my life as it is today.
