New work to show, all a result of my slowly recovering focus on my painting! I'm fluctuating back and forth between Scotland and France - still seeking sunshine. Seeking light! Slight interruptions by suddenly active B&B, but definitely feeling the muse lately! I offer two paintings - one from each. The Allt Thuim Summer painting is a summer view from a favorite spot I've worked from before; but this time, seeking green and light rather than muted reds and browns and drama. Valbonne Square speaks for itself. A lovely place to sit and absorbe the sun (I was there in March, with a horrid cold....nothing like trying to fit in and be part of the fabric of a place, dripping and sneezing and pretending you don't have a fever at all....). But there, with my perfect salad and glass of wine, I forgot my woes and enjoyed watching the people, the light, the action of this lovely, favorite square.
